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 through His poverty might become rich. – 2 Corinthians 8:9 (NASB)
Think Before You Give
You are a generous people. You give faithfully to our regular budget and generously to our missions offerings, Galatians 6:2, benevolence, and other needs as they arise. I never cease to be amazed at how the Lord provides through His people.
Today’s scriptures will help us to stop and think about the joy of generosity. It gives the example of a generous people, the most generous person (Jesus), and the great promise and principle of sowing and reaping. These things will help us with the “why?” of giving.
Thanksgiving Meal Was Wonderful
What a blessing it was to see everyone gathered around tables, enjoying delicious food, and sharing wonderful fellowship. Thanks so much to Stephanie Moore, Shery Henning, Gail Mayes, Jamie Hudson, Casey Martin, and everyone who helped with the cooking, preparation, decorations, and serving. Thanks also to all who brought side dishes and desserts. Well done!
