Description

Continuing the lesson from the morning we focus on the question itself - can we give too much of ourselves and go within the doctrine of Christ to the opinions that Christians differ over.

Opinions – Can We Give Too Much of Ourselves? Facts before opinions: God did not judge the widow (Lk. 21:1ff) or the impoverished brethren in Macedonia (2 Cor. 8:1-5) for their selflessness (or the potential need that they would be in for others to “bail them out”). God also told the rich: to be rich in good works; generous and ready to share. 1 Tim. 6:17-19; Lk. 18:25

Opinions – Can We Give Too Much of Ourselves? Answering the question: can we give too much of ourselves. Such is answered by individuals limited only by their own faith. 2 Cor. 9:6-11 What one person thinks is “too much” another believes they have more to offer. cp. 2 Cor. 8:3-5 That is why some are able to give out of their poverty and out of their abundance. Lk. 21:1-4 If you are ready to give….it is acceptable (to God) with what you have (not what you don’t have). 2 Cor. 8:12

Conclusion Some may have learned how poor they are at biblically giving and realize they have been shortchanging God and others in need: repent and give glory to God! Whatever our maturity of faith, may we ever strive to become more like our Master who “gave all” to become ‘poor’ so that we could become (eternally) rich in/through Him.
