Community Meditation

Growing in Knowledge

  • List together all the ways you can think of that our God is generous.
  • Generosity flows out of a grateful heart to God. How does your generosity reflect your love for Christ?

Feeling Life Deeply

  • Does the idea of giving bring feelings of joy to your soul? Concern? Fear? What are some of the reasons that make you hesitate in being generous?
  • Do you find it easier to give time or money? Why is giving of ourselves and our resources important?

Living with Courage

  • Do you have a commitment to give regularly, generously and with joy to our local mission at Jacob’s Well?
  • Many of us cannot give because we do not live within our means. A first step in generosity is living with focus and on a budget. Where do you need help here? If you need financial counsel, contact us at info@jacobswellnj.org.
