The Secret of Contentment
Scripture: Philippians 4:10–4:23
The foundation of Christian giving is the generosity of God. Those that buy into the lies of the false shepherds give merely so that they can get more cash. Celebrities give for tax breaks, impressive ratings, or to build monuments to themselves.
The Christian gives because he is a recipient of the grace of God. His heart is no longer ruled by mammon. He has one master, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is as Pastor Spurgeon said, “He who loves Jesus consecrates to him all that he has, and feels it a delight that he may lay anything at the feet of him who laid down his life for us.
The Christian gives because he wants to see the ministry of the gospel of grace be magnified and the name of Jesus be magnified.
