If you received a million dollars, what would you do with it? Would you pay off some bills?Or would you buy a new car? Or maybe you would go on that dream vacation with all your family?
It is a sad but true commentary on human nature that, when a person is dreaming of what to do with a million dollars, few consider what to give away to others.
We would all like to think that we are generous. But few actually are. Everyone can be, and if they were it would change everything.
But it’s not natural. it’s not common. It’s not intuitive. In fact, it’s a little radical. It’s radical to be generous.
This Sunday I begin a three-part sermon series called: Radical Generosity. As I finish up my year-long look at 1 Corinthians, we will discover how to be generous with money, time, and people from 1 Corinthians 16.
God gives to us so that we can give to others. He blesses us so that we can be a blessing.This week, in my message “Sharing Money” from 1 Corinthians 16:1-4, we will learn principles of giving from Paul’s encouragement to the Corinthian Christians to give to the financial needs of the poor saints in Jerusalem.
Join us this Sunday @ 10:30 a.m.
