Living Generously in a World of Scarcity:

“Rediscovering Contentment in a Materialistic World” Part 2

1 Timothy 6:6-10, Philippians 4:11-13

A generous life is one that is overflowing with care and concern for others,
where I position myself so that I am ready to distribute my talents, treasure
and time for the express purpose of advancing the kingdom and blessing


  1. Subscribe to the kingdom formula for true wealth (v. 6)

  2. Be thankful for what you have now (v. 7-8)

  3. Be careful of the dangers of pursuing riches (v. 9-10)


Quest for contentment

  1. Trust in the sovereignty of God to provide for your needs.

  2. Focus on the sufficiency of the Lord to give you strength and contentment.

  3. Live each day with an attitude of gratitude.

  4. Limit your exposure to social media and advertising to avoid feelings of discontent and envy caused by comparison.

  5. Identify one area of excess in your life and commit to redirecting the resources from that area toward Kingdom purposes. Prayerfully consider what you can give up to bless others.
