Giving – 2 Corinthians 7-9

In our society and even our churches giving is a sore subject. People don’t like to talk about their money. However, this just shows the problem. People are not talking about their money, they are talking about the money God has given them to be stewards over. Paul talks very strongly to the Corinthians about their need and desire to give to others in need. He does not shy away for telling people clearly about their obligation to give and the proper attitude to have about giving. What could the Church be if it got the right attitude about the resources God has entrusted to it as an institution and as people? Would more people know God? Would more people be cared for?

Dear Jesus,

Help each of us to understand what it means to be a true steward of the resources you have given us. Help me to not hold money tightly, but use it wisely as you have instructed. Thank you for your financial blessings. I love you. Amen.
