Thoughts: The first two pursuits (do good and be rich in good deeds) relate to the generous use of our time and may be combined under the heading “serving.” The latter two pursuits (be generous and willing to share) relate to the generous use of our money and possessions and may be combined under the heading “sharing.”These endeavors reverse the pull of arrogance. Serving and sharing are two disciplines that counterbalance the potentially lethal effects of growing wealth.
Discussion: How do you practice generosity to rid yourself of arrogance? How do you serve others to live out humility?
Activity: How can you actively live out what is discussed in the scripture? Do it!
