Discover the Joy of Giving–and the Rewards of Receiving
Our culture is saturated with false teaching on what it means to be blessed, but what does the Bible say about it? How can we truly live blessed lives? With humor, passion, and clarity, pastor and bestselling author Robert Morris presents the secrets of living a blessed life both financially and spiritually. He shows that when God changes your heart from selfishness to generosity, every part of your life-journey is affected.
“There is no greater adventure on Earth than simply living the life of generosity and abundance that is available to all of God’s people–but so few ever dare to live,” says Pastor Robert. “It is a journey of reward. It is the blessed life.”
Too often, greed and materialism can choke out the true spirit of generosity found only in Christ. In this new, revised edition of The Blessed Life–featuring fresh stories, illustrations, and testimonials–Robert Morris, founding senior pastor of Gateway Church, examines the true meaning of the blessed life.
The enemy wants to keep you from discovering God’s principles governing the financial stewardship, giving, and the blessing. Why? Because once you do, it will change every area of your life from your marriage to your health and finances. It will also impact the kingdom of God. What if every needed church facility could be built? What if every missionary could be sent and abundantly supplied? What if the gospel could saturate every culture on the planet?
When God changes your heart from selfishness to generosity, every part of your life journey is affected. With humor, passion, and clarity, Robert presents this truth on the pages of The Blessed Life.
First published in 2002, this newly revised and expanded edition includes new content from recent sermons, updated illustrations from years of the life-changing impact of its message, and testimonies from people experiencing the blessed life.
“The discussion of generosity can go in a million different directions, and it can be hard to see the truth among all the misinformation. But The Blessed Life brings a biblical, evangelical, well-balanced view of giving that all Christ-followers can benefit from. I can’t recommend it highly enough, and you’re going to be glad I told you to read this book!”
—Dave Ramsey, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host
“In The Blessed Life, Robert Morris perfectly communicates his life message about giving. So many people in this modern world view giving through legalistic eyes or as a way to get back more than what they give. This book resists that outlook by explaining that the purpose of generosity is simply to be generous. It’s a revelation that has changed my life and I hope it changes yours as well.”
—John C. Maxwell, leadership expert, author, and speaker
“This book challenged the way I view money, the way I use money, and the way I trust God. In any discussion about finances and spirituality, this book deserves a place at the table.”
—Max Lucado, pastor and author
