The value of Generosity
1. MY GIVING IS AN ____________________ TO OTHERS
“It was good of you to share in my troubles… as you Philippians know, in the early days …. not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only; for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid again and again when I was in need. “
Phil. 1:3-5-“Partners in Ministry”
2 Cor. 8:1-5 – A great reputation

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:6-8
