Blessed by Giving - Selflessly


2 Cor. 8:4 - "...they begged us insistently for the privilege of sharing in the ministry to the saints..."

OK quiz time. (Yeah, I am an educator).

When was the last time you begged to be allowed to give generously? (Jeopardy theme playing softly...) If you're waiting for an answer from me -- I asked you first.

These churches in Macedonia wanted to give so badly they begged Paul for the chance. Remember, they were going through adversity and poverty - yet they pleaded for the opportunity to give to others. That's the kind of church that God blesses. That's the kind of person God blesses.

To often today we pray and seek for ways for people to give to us. And God's plan is for us to give to others. Today, see how many times you can ask (plead, beg, conjole) others to let you give.
