To help introduce the Point, “Our generous giving should glorify God and reflect Christ’s giving,” summarize this story from the Northern Kentucky University student newspaper:
Share that an event such as Beach Reach calls on students to be generous in multiple areas. They need to be generous with their time, by giving up their own Spring Break plans in order to serve in this ministry. They need to be generous with their sleep, because they are giving up multiple hours of it! They need to be generous with their attitudes, because they are serving mostly drunk and often obnoxious Spring Breakers. And finally, they must be generous with their prayer. A vital component of Beach Reach is the intense prayer vigil that takes place back at “base camp” every minute van and street teams are out on the streets of Panama City.
And it isn’t just college students that are being generous. Every morning of Beach Reach, hundreds of Spring Breakers descend upon a bowling alley on the Strip to enjoy a free pancake breakfast provided by volunteers from Southern Baptist Disaster Relief.
- How might God be calling you to be more generous with your time, your priorities, your attitudes, and your prayer?
