It’s Generosity Day!
The Apostle Paul commended the Macedonian churches. In a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy in the midst of their extreme poverty overflowed in a wealth of generosity. They gave according to their means and beyond begging to take part in the relief of the saints. (2 Corinthians 8:1-5 ESV)
Many Americans will never know that incredible blessing because they only give from their leftovers. Let me encourage you to give sacrificially. It’s a great first move towards faithful stewardship. True generosity’s a testimony to God’s ownership, allowing Him to use the money He’s provided for His purposes. Giving is not about what He wants FROM you, it’s about what He wants FOR you.
