“So let’s do it—full of belief... Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word. Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out, not avoiding worshiping together as some do but spurring each other on.” –Hebrews 10:24-25

Sermon Title: “Formed to Be Generous”

Theme Jacob had an amazing dream with a promise from God. Because of
that dream he made a conscious decision to become generous
because of God’s promises.

Questions to Think About as You Read:
1) Why do you think there are lots of churches and a number of colleges
named “Bethel”?
2) Can you name some specific instances where you were generous to others
or someone else was generous towards you? What was that feeling like?
3) How do/could God’s promises form us in terms of our relationship with money?
