“Direction, not intention determines your destination” is one of Pastor Kevin’s favorite quotes is from pastor Andy Stanley of North Point Church in Atlanta Georgia and Pastor Kevin talks about the destination of his book, Audacious Generosity in this episode with the focus on the conclusion.
Audacious Generosity concludes in our destination of being empowered for limitless giving audacious generosity by noting the three steps we worked through:
First Step: We had to set God free by daily asking God for more and acknowledging that this will take a lifetime of courage and accepting God’s request to take courage.
Second Step: We had to set ourselves free by winning three boxing matches that kept us from all generosity (Fear vs. Freedom, Working vs. Resting, and Reprimand vs. Reward).
Third Step: We had to set others free by flipping the switch from getting more to giving more, from greed to generosity, and from burden to blessing.
Now, we are free to live recklessly for God. We encourage everyone to wake up everyday to become more generous as God gives through you, living recklessly for God. Do not hesitate even if you feel it is absolutely reckless at times, do it anyway. God is so confident of his love and care for you that he will ask you to abandon everything for the sake of the call. Now, you know, this isn't a subtraction from his blessing to you but a multiplication of his blessing through you living recklessly for God empowers you for limitless giving. That is audacious generosity. And remember that God is guiding us toward becoming like Christ.
Opening our hands before God is not just some mystical spiritual exercise but a calling that the living God of the universe is inviting us to join him in his work. God is the giver and giving depends upon what God puts into our hands. So there is no need to fear and simply…
