“We make known to you the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia: that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded in the riches of their liberality” (2 Cor 8:1-2).

You’ve heard it before: the best things in life aren’t things. But the things we do have can make us rich by sharing them with others. Jesus made it clear: you really only get to keep what you give.
