Holy Habits Group Studies: Gladness and Generosity
Resourcing the Holy Habits discipleship journey for groups
Gladness and generosity go together in this Holy Habit because they are inextricably linked. A generously forgiving and trusting nature is often - though not necessarily - a cheerful one. But the root of giving that is generous and cheerful is thankfulness, as we realise what God has done for us and respond with gladness.
Holy Habits is an adventure in Christian discipleship. Inspired by Luke's model of church found in Acts 2:42â€“47, it identifies ten habits and encourages the development of a way of life formed by them.
The habits are: Biblical Teaching, Fellowship, Breaking Bread, Prayer, Sharing Resources, Serving, Eating Together, Gladness and Generosity, Worship, and Making More Disciples.
These resources are designed to help churches explore the habits creatively in a range of contexts and live them out in whole-life, intergenerational, missional discipleship.
This Bible study group material has been developed to help churches and individuals explore the Holy Habits through prayerful engagement with the Bible and live them out in whole-life, missional discipleship.
