Studies show the wealthier a person gets, the less generous they become. Someone who makes $20K or less is 8x more likely to give to their church than someone who makes $75K or more. American Christians give less per capita today than during the Great Depression. If the American Church would simply tithe one year, we’d have an additional $165 billion to distribute and use for ministry! In this sermon, we look at a paragraph from Paul’s second letter to the Corinthian church–a church that was abundantly gifted, but kinda stingy. Paul taught the Corinthians (and by extension, us) why it’s important to be defined by generosity. Is your life defined by generosity?
