Day 252: September 9 (1 Corinthians 16)

Good morning!

In Chapter 16 Paul concludes his letter with instructions for the offering for the saints in Jerusalem, followed by some final instructions and a closing greeting.

This is not just a chapter of irrelevant details, though! There is much wisdom for us today: here are a few things that stood out to me, see what you find as you read.

Firstly, generosity does not happen by accident; it is the result of planning and regular discipline with our money.

Secondly, God is the one setting Paul’s agenda; the apostle is not following his own career plan.

Thirdly, younger leaders are to be welcomed and respected just as the more experienced would be.

And fourthly, it takes courage, and faith, to do everything with love.

Now, what is God showing you?
Have a great day!
