Week 5 Challenge Topic - GENEROUS

Post by itsjoanne » Thu Oct 31, 2019 12:17 pm

Hey there, Challengeers. This is the last week before we take a weeklong breather - so don’t skip this time! I love the Week 5 topic:


I’m not sure you need a definition, but here it is:


The Bible is full of lessons about the importance of selfless generosity. Proverbs 11:25 “A generous person will prosper.”

Generosity is not always about finances. We can be generous with our time, our encouragement, our gifts and talents.

The word is truly beautiful because of all it means. At FaithWriters, we encourage our members to be generous with their encouragement to other members by reading and reviewing articles and Challenge entries. The truth of Proverbs 11:25 is played out when people take time to provide insightful feedback on Challenge entries. As we give, we also learn and grow.

Have fun with the topic. You can write in any genre or style you like, AS LONG AS SOME MEANING OF THE TOPIC IS THE MAIN FOCUS OF YOUR ENTRY ... and as long as the entry conforms to the rules.

And keep this in mind: Entries may be in any style or genre, and they do not need to be overtly Christian in message. However, they must, at minimum, come from a Christian worldview/outlook. In the case of fiction, the Christian worldview/outlook may be subtle or allegorical, but it should still offer a fairly clear Christian viewpoint.

Remember to check your word count before submitting (entries must be between 150 and 750 words). A very reliable and free online word count check tool is this one:


PLEASE, always hit the preview button to check your entry before hitting the final submit button. This is the only way to make sure your entry is uploaded correctly. This is very important, particularly if you are using HTML code for the first time. Once you have previewed your entry, close the preview page and hit the submit button.

Finally, once submitted, do a check to make sure your entry is safely in the list:


Be generous with your time and creativity this week. You never know who you will bless with your writing. Hope to see you in the list.

Love, Joanne
