2 Corinthians 8 - Abundant Joy

2 Corinthians 8:1 - Poverty + an 'abundance of Joy' = generosity. And where do you and an abundance of joy? Only in Jesus. Sure, life can bring joy, but that joy is not abundant, it's circumstantial. Joy at the wedding day fades as the burdens of life and the challenges of married life weigh down. Joy at the birth of a child fades with the responsibilities of parenting. But the joy in Christ is abundant because he is the antidote to all the things in life that rob us of joy.

1 Corinthians 8:9 - "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich." The original and ultimate transfer of wealth. :-D
