2 Corinthians 8:1-15
It is plain from a reading of the Bible that God doesnt want everybody rich. We hear preachers telling their followers this but when the dust has settled, the only ones that are getting rich are the preachers. There are Christians living all over the world...some are living in poverty and some may be wealthy. The call is not for Christians to become rich but for followers of Jesus to be faithful in whatever amount that we have.
God wants us to learn to become generous...not a taker but a giver. Giving to God should become the highest priority in our lives. We should be able to answer the question, Why does God want giving to Him to become the greatest priority in my life? If we cant answer that question we will never become a generous giver. But today we will learn five life-changing reasons to become a generous Christian.
