Building the Kingdom through a posture of generosity - Mark Sayers

November 19, 2018

This week Mark unpacks how our world is built on a myth of scarcity. Steven Covey says, "Most people are deeply scripted in what I call the Scarcity Mentality. They see life as having only so much, as though they were only one pie out there".

The Bible, however, says in 2 Corinthians 9 that God is able to bless us abundantly. Mark invites us to take a posture of generosity in all areas of our lives, as a response to the abundant riches we are gifted. These Kingdom riches are to be shared so that others can experience God's inexhaustible abundance.
