Matthew 27:57-60 (CSB) 

57 When it was evening, a rich man from Arimathea named Joseph came, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus. 58 He approached Pilate and asked for Jesus’s body. Then Pilate ordered that it be released. 59 So Joseph took the body, wrapped it in clean, fine linen, 60 and placed it in his new tomb, which he had cut into the rock. He left after rolling a great stone against the entrance of the tomb. 

Generosity Connects us to God. 

John 19:38 (CSB) 

…Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jewish leaders.  

Matthew 6:21 (CSB) 

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 

Proverbs 14:31 (CSB) 

Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, 
but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. 

Generosity Changes us. 

Isaiah 53:9 (CSB) 

He was assigned a grave with the wicked, 
but he was with a rich man at his death, 
because he had done no violence 
and had not spoken deceitfully. 

Proverbs 21:26 

[The wicked person] is filled with craving all day long, 
but the righteous give and don’t hold back. 

Generosity Blesses us.  

Malachi 3:10 (CSB) 

Bring the full tenth into the storehouse so that there may be food in my house. Test me in this way,” says the Lord of Armies. “See if I will not open the floodgates of heaven and pour out a blessing for you without measure. 

2 Corinthians 9:7-8 (CSB) 

7 Each person should do as he has decided in his heart—not reluctantly or out of compulsion, since God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make every grace overflow to you, so that in every way, always having everything you need, you may excel in every good work. 

2 Corinthians 9:11 (CSB) 

You will be enriched in every way for all generosity, which produces thanksgiving to God through us.
