Monday - A New Idea - Generosity

Sermon on the Mount

This week, we take an honest look at our motivations for giving and helping others. Charities know people like to be honoured and recognized for the good, generous people they are. More likely to give, if they know they’ll be honoured. A Dutch study of church offerings of cash for outside charities. Baskets & Bags. When using baskets, attendees can see the contribution made by their direct neighbours as well as the total amount already gathered. Givings Increased 10% when baskets are used. Not just money. Owners of the environmentally friendly Toyota Prius were polled about why they drive a Prius. #1 answer was this it makes a statement about me. Higher fuel economy and lower emissions in third and fifth place! Our concern for what others think can clearly motivate us to give and do good...a fact many charities use to their advantage to raise money! Question: How have you benefited from giving to others in the past? Think about both tangible and intangible ones, intentional or not. How do you feel about receiving these?
