2 Corinthians 8.1-15
On Sunday I will be preaching from 2 Corinthians 8.1-15. Hear verses 1 & 2: "We want you to know, brothers and sisters, about the grace of God that has been granted to the churches of Macedonia; for during a severe ordeal of affliction, their abundant joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part." Macedonia seems to have something going right. I wonder what that is? If you continue reading that same chapter you will see that they even begged Paul to let them bless him ----- even though it sounds like they had very little. Have you all ever noticed that the people that have the very least are the most generous?
