Affirmation of Generosity

Praying hands

Written by Revs. Stephen Poore and Drew Willson, Center Church/Boulevard UMC, Richmond, Virginia

Godliness with contentment is great gain.

We bring nothing into this world, and we take nothing out of it.

We who call Jesus Lord devote ourselves to resisting greed, which plunges the human heart into ruin and pierces it with many griefs.

We are determined to practice generosity with free hearts, fixing our hope on God and not on the uncertainty of wealth.

We desire to be rich in good deeds and willing to share all that we have, laying up for ourselves treasure that will not decay but will shine in the age to come.

So let it be with us: Amen.
