A Generous Life
The Philippians stepped up to send a generous gift to Paul while he was in a time of need. The thing is, this wasn't the first time they had given generously to Paul's ministry! As Paul says thanks to them at the close of his letter, he lets us in on something about the Philippians -- they had established a pattern of generous giving towards Kingdom work and the care of others.
The Philippians seem to get something that God desperately wants us to get -- that God is glorified and we are blessed when we live a life of generosity.
What do the Philippians seem to get about giving that we need to get? What does Paul have to say back to them that we need to pick up on to be the generously-giving people God has called his people to be?
