Generous Grace: 2 Corinthians 8: 1-15
Sunday, October 29, 2017 :: Keith Abbott

Have you ever met anyone that didn’t think they were generous? Different people have different definitions or ideas of what it means to be generous.  As followers of Christ we are called to be generous but what does generosity look like for us? How is it any different than the rest of the generous people in the world?
