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.
