Introducing a new Bible study designed to unlock the generous heart in every believer.
Narrated by Baptist leaders from across the state, MIRACULOUS GENEROSITY blends timeless truths from the Bible with modern-day examples of generosity to demonstrate how God can use even our smallest acts of generosity to change the world.
The Bible is filled with stories that demonstrate how God takes our humble gifts and multiplies them — when we put them to work for His kingdom.
But are miracles of generosity just for biblical times? In this hour-long study, Baptist leaders from across Virginia examine how God has used everyday acts of obedience to bless the world.
Insights from the Bible are paired with modern-day examples of God’s miraculous provision. Interactive discussion questions explore barriers to giving, and practical advice from the Virginia Baptist Foundation reveals innovative ways to overcome them.
This inspiring, powerful study will change your congregation’s attitude about generosity….and perhaps forever change the way they think about giving.
