Psalm 24:1; Matthew 6:24-34; John 3:16; Acts 2:42-47: 2 Corinthians 8:1-15; James 2:14-17

Jesus often reminded His disciples of God’s generous provision – e.g. Mt. 10:8. In Acts 20:35 Paul quotes a saying of Jesus not found in the Gospels: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Writing to Corinth he encourages generosity and says: “God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Cor. 9:7.) We’re all responsible for using what God has given us as His stewards. This goes beyond money (e.g. care of the Earth) but certainly includes it. Are we good stewards – individually and as a church?
