Good morning!

Text: 2 Corinthians 8  (1 Kings 19-20)
Our 2 Corinthians text this morning brings encouraging words about generous giving. It is our great God that sets the example as He gives us so very much.  To us who deserve the worst, He gave His very best:
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich. (2 Corinthians 8:9)
Just think of Jesus’ grace extended to us – His death that we might live and His pain that we might have joy and hope.  And now think of how we can give of our substance that His Kingdom might be built.  He has made us rich.  Whether it is money, time or affections, as we give so that others might receive Jesus’ grace we are able to reflect Him.  What a privilege.
in Him, Mike
