“And they did not do as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God’s will”

— 2 Corinthians 8:5


Paul was surprised at the Macedonians’ generosity to the Lord’s work for two reasons. First, they were very impoverished and didn’t have much to share. Second, rather than viewing what they had as their own, they gave themselves to God and then to his servants who were asking for their help in ministering to others. Their example is a great reminder to us of how we need to approach our giving to help others in need.

Our Prayer…

O Righteous Father and Holy God, forgive me for being selfish with the funds you have so richly shared with me. I want to give my heart and my life to you fully, not holding back anything from your will, and I ask you to help me know how to best use the blessings you have entrusted to me. In Jesus’ name I pray.

Amen.
