  • According to the most recent research, the average American has a credit card balance of $5,525. Does that number surprise you? What does it tell us about how most people in our culture approach money?
  • If you were presented with a check for $10,000 with the stipulation that you had to give it away anonymously, what people or projects would be on the top of your list?
  • Jeff shared that Jesus talked more about money than any other topic. Why do you think He focused on this topic over other important issues He could have spent more time on?
  • Read 1 Timothy 6:6-11; 17-19. What is the trap Paul describes in this passage? Have you seen others fall into this trap (or experienced it yourself) where the desire to get rich was the source of “many griefs”?
  • How does this passage define what a generosity-driven life looks like? What happens because of this type of lifestyle?
  • Can you think of a time where someone else’s generosity was a game changer in your own life?
  • Can you think of a time where being generous was a game changer for you—where you felt God moving through you in a new way, where it changed your heart, or altered your perspective? Share what happened.
  • Are you more of a sporadic or planned giver? What is one way you can make specific plans to be more generous this week?

NEXT STEPS

John Maxwell once said, “A budget is people telling their money what to do instead of ‘wondering where it all went.’” So, take time this week to look at your budget. How well do you know where your money is going? Does the amount or priority of the way you spend money need to change anywhere?
