From Rich to Poor

Sermon Summary

November 4, 2018

Shawn Stinson





2 Corinthians 8:1–15




  • The root of sacrificial giving is joy not wealth
  • The root of sacrificial giving is worship not budgeting
    • Worshipful giving requires sacrifice
    • Worshipful giving is a joyful discipline of exploration
    • Worshipful giving is not begrudgingly given, but anticipated and sought out
  • The root of sacrificial giving is Jesus not us


What does this mean for our community?


  • We should definitely not hesitate to take care of our own, without reservation
  • We should be dedicated to this as an act of worship, seeking God weekly
    • This is not set it and forget it
  • If you have a need, make it known to others around you
  • If you have ample surplus, instead of upgrading life, consider someone who is trying to survive
