15 Days on Giving

October 24 – 2 Corinthians 8:22-24
Jesus knows that our hearts have a tendency to become intertwined with our wallets. The rich young ruler very sadly turned his back on Jesus because he knew he could not separate the two. In 8:24, Paul communicates his desire to feel as proud of the Corinthians’ giving as he is of the Macedonians’ by writing “show them the proof of your love.” How we spend our money reveals who or what ultimately is in control of our hearts. Does your giving provide proof of your love and devotion for Jesus, his followers, and his world? Does your giving reflect the grace you have so richly received from Christ?
