We are living in a time where fear and despair are the overwhelming attitudes. Whether we’re talking about our personal financial situations or our national financial situation or our world’s financial situation these attitudes are prevalent. Fear. Despair.

But as those who profess faith and resurrection, we can’t succumb to fear. We can’t ignore the problems of the world, but we can’t let fear be our master.

We are not people of fear.
We are not people of despair.
We are not a people of obligation.

Fear leads to selfishness.
Despair leads to self-preservation.
Obligation leads to legalism.

We are people of hope.

Hope that comes from grace.
Hope that comes from resurrection.

Hope leads to freedom.
Freedom leads to Generosity.

Let us be a people of freedom.
Let us be a people of grace,
overflowing in generosity.
