20 DAY CHALLENGE

Week One

DAY 1 » SEND IT

Bless someone by sending them a gift. It may be a gift for someone you know, or you could send a gift to a child in Mexico via the StoneWater mission team.

DAY 2 » VISIT A FRIEND

It’s simple. In a world of social media friends, sometimes we need to be reminded to be social in person. Go see a friend or hang out as you did in high school. Sonic, DQ, and Cane’s are where the kids hang these days. (Sorry, Tolar!)

DAY 3 » BE OVER THE TOP GENEROUS TO GOD

Give God an hour of your time. Pray, read, listen, drive, walk, run, ride, or sit with Him without being distracted.

DAY 4 » PAY IT FORWARD

This one’s the most common: pay for the person behind you in a drive-thru or grocery store. Be creative.

DAY 5 » PRAY FOR SOMEONE

It’s scary, we know, but you can do it! For bonus points, pray for a stranger.

Week Two

DAY 6 » FORGIVE A HURT

Whether it be a family member, an enemy, a friend, or even God—shoot a text, call, or meet face-to-face if you feel led. For some, it may simply be in your heart. Forgiveness creates a generous heart.

DAY 7 » OLD SCHOOL NOTE

Put a pen to paper and write an old school encouragement note to someone. Be generous with your words.

DAY 8 » GIVE SOMETHING THAT HURTS

Give something away that stretches you. It could be money, a gift, or something around the house you love and know would bless someone else.

DAY 9 » BLESS YOUR FAMILY

Get out of your routine in order to bless your family. Remember the blessing that they are.

DAY 10 » GIVE TO THE POOR

It’s pretty straightforward! Look for someone in need and give.

Week Three

DAY 11 » PHONE A CHURCH FRIEND

Call and encourage a friend from church. If you don’t have a friend yet, introduce yourself to some people this week or join a group.

DAY 12 » HELP SOMEONE WHO CANNOT HELP BACK

It’s easy to help people who will help us back, but what if we helped someone who could not return the favor? (BTW, this is what God does for us.)

DAY 13 » ACKNOWLEDGE SOMEONE WHO HELPS YOU IN LIFE

Whether it’s a spouse, a child, a co-worker… recognize and thank a person who helps you in life.

DAY 14 » CLEAN THE HOUSE

Grab a toilet brush, empty the dishwasher, mop the floor, take out the trash—you get the idea. Go over the top clean. Bless your family.

DAY 15 » HAVE SOMEONE OVER

Your house is clean! Why not bless someone by inviting them over?

Week Four

DAY 16 » GIVE TO GOD’S MISSION

Give to the church, a mission agency, or a missionary who is reaching people for Jesus.

DAY 17 » CALL HOME

For some, it’s been a while since we’ve checked in. Call home or maybe even stop by. If your parents have passed, call family or someone who is like family to you, and let them know how much they mean to you.

DAY 18 » PROVIDE A MEAL

Bless a family with a meal, buy a meal for a co-worker or friend, or take pizza to a first responder.

DAY 19 » INVITE SOMEONE TO CHURCH

God is an important part of your life or you would not have made it 19 days. Invite someone to church and allow them to experience your generous God.

DAY 20 » FREESTYLE YOUR OWN

It’s your turn. Lead from your heart. You’ve made it this far. It’s not the end, it’s the beginning of an OVER THE TOP GENEROUS life. GO FOR IT!
