Growing Generosity

Date: June 28, 2015Liturgical Day: The Fifth Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 8B)

generosity our response to grace and love fruit of the Spirit

Summary: The Apostle Paul encourages his friends in Corinth to be generous in giving their financial support to an offering he was taking to help the saints who were destitute in Jerusalem. The Macedonians were extravagantly faithful in doing so, even though their community was impoverished. The Corinthians (who lived in a much more prosperous setting) could do even more. This text encourages us, today, to be generous in our support of congregational ministry and relief to those in need.
