It is our prayer that the Word of God will not only be preached and heard at Woolsey but daily applied to our lives. Talk-It-Over is created by Pastor Chuck as a resource to accompany the Sunday Morning Sermon. Use these questions for personal reflection or discuss them with your spouse and families!
Please do not hesitate to contact Pastor Chuck if he can be of any assistance to you in applying God's Word.
Why do you think we do not give generously like the churches in Macedonia? (Refer to 2 Cor. 8:1–5)
Pastor Chuck told the story about the man who said he would have to rescind his commitment to tithe because he had begun to make so much money. What would you say are some of the challenges in the two following categories when it comes to generosity? A.) Life has never been better. B.) Life has never been harder.
Read again 2 Corinthians 8:9. Why do you think believers often seem to live spiritually impoverished lives? How does this verse counter the “prosperity gospel?”
Where have you seen generosity displayed in your life? What changes are needed for you to have a greater level of generosity?
What are some practical ways of showing generosity in your home, workplace, school, and among your neighbors?
