Re:Verse reading–2 Corinthians 8:1-15 (day four)
As I write this blog, it is Tuesday, August 8, 2017. It is our 36th anniversary…also, our second granddaughter was born today. Jordyn Nicole made her arrival just before noon. It is amazing! The gift of life is absolutely amazing. Just to sit and look at her in your arms causes an overflow of joy and gratitude! I cannot imagine after receiving this amazing gift of life, of offering it to save someone else’s life. Yet, that is what God did for us. Out of His great love for us and by His limitless generosity, He gave His only Son to die in our place. What an amazing gift! How could He have that much love for us?
Love causes us to want to give. Paul is encouraging the church at Corinth to think of others and give out of their supply. Generosity grows out of a loving heart…service to others grows out of a loving heart. From God’s richest possession, He gave to our need. How can we do any less?
