In the last couple of weeks, the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted our entire world, creating a sense of instability and uncertainty that is new for a lot of people. Something happens inside of human beings in times of crisis. Our instincts for self-preservation kick in,
and we begin to cultivate a scarcity mindset. It becomes very easy to focus on the well-being of ourselves and our family and forget the difficulties of others around us.

Jesus of Nazareth was no stranger to this kind of social instability.
He grew up in land occupied by a foreign military, and oppressive Roman taxes made life difficult for his family and neighbors. And yet, he called his followers to a very different kind of response.
He taught that our obsession with self-preservation not only makes us more miserable and anxious, it actually creates more of the thing that we’re trying to avoid.
Watch our video on the biblical theme of generosity and reflect on the goodness of God as you practice acts of generosity in a time of scarcity.
