Treasure: The Journey to a Generous Heart
Part 2 (2 Corinthians 8:1-5)


1 And now, brothers and sisters, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. 

Grace is the ability to choose Christlikeness 

forgiven never sinned fulfilled the Law



2 In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity

joy killer (circumstances)
joy giver (trial + poverty)




3 For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own


Grace is the ability to choose Christlikeness (Jesus’ motives)
