Contagious Generosity

Adam_HS_largeThis month we are in a season of anticipation and giving. Growing up, my father cultivated a giving culture within our family, randomly bringing my mom flowers, my sister a doll, my brother new drumsticks, etc. I have tried to follow in his footsteps and love giving my wife and kids even the smallest of gifts.

This passion for generosity has bled outside of just my family life and into God’s mission of restoration and healing in this world. Through partnerships with nonprofits, my family has helped build fresh water wells in Africa, rescue girls from human trafficking in Cambodia, start churches in remote villages in Nepal, give orphans in India a home, and helped give low income children in Indianapolis a math tutor. Generosity has become a healthy addiction fueled by passion and impact in God’s kingdom. I love inviting others into this journey, and understand what Paul meant when he wrote in Philippians 4, “I want you to experience the blessing that issues from generosity.” I know you do too.

Thank you for partnering with ServLife to start churches, care for children and fight poverty in India and Nepal. You have helped serve more people this year than any prior year. Having been overseas last month, I can once again verify the impact of your gift. Lives are being changed and hope is being restored. Thank you for your generosity to deepen this impact.

May God contagiously cultivate our hearts of generosity to positively impact this world for his kingdom and family. May God’s kingdom come, his will be done and his love be known.
