Posted in greed, generosity by LifeSpringChurch on November 26th, 2017

The text for this sermon comes from Amos 6:1-7.  In this text Amos condemn the people of Judah because of their greed and self-centeredness leading to the mistreatment of people who were poor, sick, or disenfranchised.  The sermon looks at how the sins of our current age are similar to those of ancient Judah and also at what a new way of living would look.

This sermon takes its text from 2 Corinthians 8:1-15 and focuses on the exemplary generosity of the Macedonians (people who lived north of Greece).  Paul says that despite conditions which he described as "severe," "ordeal," "affliction," and "obligation," they were generous with what little they had and actually begged for the opportunity to participate in the contribution.  The sermon discusses four lesson that can be gained from the Macedonian example.
