We have a generous God and it flows into us. Pastor Preston continues in our sermon series So Ride On. The series is about exploring our four main values at Lake Ridge and this week he explored our value of "Generosity." He explores several scriptures in the bible Proverbs 11:25 those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. We live this, not out of duty, but as a posture we take to be generous in all areas of our life. It is your privilege to grow in this area - you do not have to have it all figured out.

The way in which we treat each other that people will know God. All our other values of story, generosity and worship flow into community. Pastor Evan shares on Lake Ridge’s value of community. At the very beginning of creation we see in Genesis 1:26 we are made for community. God said let us make human beings in our image, in our likeness. Father, son and holy spirit created us in their likeness. This is why we have this deep soul calling to be connected. To have relationship in it's truest form is to admit you need them in order to grow into who you are. We must learn to rely on each other. It’s hard to admit we need each other. How are you learning to need the person next to you? Choose to need each other, because that is the message of God and what you actually made for.
The authors that wrote scripture wrote them with a purpose and were writing to someone. It's valuable to know the history and the time. Pastor Evan explores the stories of John that reveal to us John's ability to notice and reveal God. It takes time and reflection, and studying to notice God working in your everyday life. John had spent time to practice this. We want to become the kind of people who notice God in our community.
