from 2 Corinthians 8:1-7
Whether it is the worry associated with not having enough, or the pressure of knowing how to steward if you have it, money continued to be for many one of the greatest causes of stress in many people’s lives.
While it is a necessary part of living in this consumer-driven culture, surely God’s intention was never for it to become the burden that it is.
In 2 Corinthians 8 Paul is telling of a group of believers who though they find themselves in the midst of severe persecution and poverty, are begging for the opportunity to participate in the offering for the Jerusalem church.
How is this possible, when many of us stress over paying bills for the roof over our heads.
Perhaps our problem is less a money issue, and more one of perspective…imagine how you would view the things in your life, money included, if you had a bigger view of God.
