AG Podcast E14: David’s Story – Culture of Generosity
David worked with Hunter at St. Ministry in Birmingham for years where they would go ride in a truck to pick up donations together. He became a father figure for Hunter and showed him what a man of Christ is. Hunter’s relationship with David is one of discipleship and action.
When he and his wife heard God’s call for them, they quit their stable job for 10 years and took their three children with them to do what God commanded, placing their faith and trust that God will provide them with whatever they would need. When they got to the seminary, they didn’t have a job for a little while but they were lucky enough to have a little bit of savings to help them for the next three months. But the savings didn’t last, enough though they had a roof over their heads, they were running out of the finances that they had in the bank.
But God did not forget them. One day, David received a knock on their door and a lady was outside, telling him that she wasn’t sure why she was here, only that she was sure God told her to come here and give David the trunk full of groceries she had in her car. She didn’t know why, all she knew was that God had been guiding her since she was in the grocery store to buy twice than she was supposed to and to give that extra grocery to David and his family.
God had answered their prayers in such a wonderful way. They don’t know her name nor did she even stay, only giving them the grocery God has guided her to buy before leaving. God gave David and his family more than enough and they know exactly what to do. They are empowered to become generous and to become givers.
God empowers generosity all around us and it is that generosity that we give to others. They, in turn, divide that generosity and give that to those around them, creating a cycle of generosity.
A culture of generosity.
That is what we long for in the church. We long for more people to live with such abandonment and a spirit of generosity because we will never know a more cheerful giver than our Almighty God. As long as we trust and have faith in Him, he will provide for us. And whatever he provides for us, we open our hands and give them to others.
That is Audacious Generosity.
