2 Corinthians 8:1-5
Did you know that Jesus spoke five times more about money than he did about prayer? On this Stewardship Sunday it is a good time to be reminded that one of the five Marks of Discipleship is giving.
The Apostle Paul sent out an appeal to the churches of Macedonia. The mother church in Jerusalem was struggling. The appeal was a success because the people saw the need. They were challenged, and they gave.
Stewardship Sunday is a time of challenge. We can always do better than we are doing. We have enough stuff, says a children’s book written by Connie Beyer Horn. So what are those Marks of Discipleship?
- Pray regularly.
- Worship regularly.
- Read the Bible regularly.
- Serve regularly.
- Give regularly.
All the Marks of Discipleship are important responses to what God in Jesus has already done for us. We can always do better. WE HAVE ENOUGH STUFF! Amen.
