2 Corinthians 2:10-9:2
Louis Tamburro
Giving benefits you, those around you, and the restoration of creation. The good news of the gospel is that all the treasures you’re pursuing in life require you to make sacrifices to obtain them, but Jesus is the one who sacrificed to obtain you. All the treasures you’re pursuing require you to purchase them, but Jesus is the one who died for your sins to purchase you. Your money, your career, your treasures won’t die for you, but Jesus died for you and invites you to participate in the restoration of his creation. The degree to which you view Jesus laying his life down as your greatest treasure, is the degree to which you’ll lay your wealth down as a lesser treasure. When Jesus becomes your greatest treasure, it frees you up to give generously for the restoration of his creation. Even if you can only give a little right now, that little can still make a lot of difference, when it’s combined with the rest of the church. Your little can still play a significant part in the restoration of God’s creation. So in the words of John Wesley, “Make all you can, save all you can, give all you can.” In the words of Jesus, “It’s more blessed to give, than to receive.”
