Series: GO Mission

We vaccinate against affluenza and other pitfalls of wealth with generosity. Andy Stanley, in Fields of Gold, lays out three key elements of generosity: priority, percentage, and progressive giving. Priority giving means developing an intentional plan to be generous, while percentage giving involves setting a specific amount to contribute (e.g. tithing). Progressive giving means increasing the overall amount or percentage of giving over time as our financial situation changes. In each of these elements of generosity, we affirm that everything belongs to God and that we trust Him.
