2 Corinthians 8:1-9
Both skeptics and believers would agree it isn’t good for us to live in a world of greed. Imagine living in a society full of greed, a society where nobody’s ever generous with their time, talents, or treasures. Imagine living in a society where nobody’s ever willing to help when your car breaks down, help bring you meals when you’re sick, help when you’re struggling financially, emotionally, spiritually. Imagine living in a society full of greed, where nobody’s a good Samaritan. You wouldn’t want to live in a society like that, which tells you our lives, relationships, churches, society would be far better off if we grew in generosity instead of greed. But how? How do we grow in generosity instead of greed? It starts with our motivation. We give because Jesus gave.
