PARTNERING WITH GOD
II Corinthians 9:6-15

Pastor David Streets
Good Morning Church! Welcome to week number four in our series of messages about generosity. We have been talking about generosity all month long.
Do you remember last week I told you a story told by Henry Blackaby in his Experiencing God study? During an effort to raise funds for the church, an older, single, widowed woman with not many resources came into his office. She wanted to make a contribution to the church and Dr. Blackaby refused her gift. He said that he just could not accept her gift knowing how badly she needed the money for herself. Do you remember how she responded to him?
She said, “Oh Pastor, would you deny me the privilege of serving my Lord in such a way?” She, like the widow in Jesus’ story, wanted to be a part of what God was doing.
