BIBLE READINGS:

  • Exodus 16:1­-21

  • 2 Corinthians 8:1­-25

The statistics are as significant as they are surprising - nearly half the parables of Jesus deal with issues to do with money and wealth, and fully 10% of the verses in the New Testament are about the same subject. For Jesus, how we deal with our money and wealth really matters. In this sermon, the first of a short series, we look at 2 Cor 8, and see how Paul leads the Corinthians church and us - to be a 'centre of excellence' in Christian stewardship.
