Morning Ponderings

Success is achieving Christ's Will for your life. Perpetually seeking and attaining the necessary wisdom, knowledge and understanding. ~ Rick E. Meyer

"SuccessèGoal of LifeèPleasing the Lord. (2 Corinthians 5:9)" ~ Dr. Toussaint

A proper view of suffering always begins with a proper view of God. (2 Cor. 1:3-4)

"We died to the Ten Commandments. The tenth commandment becomes the Hermeneutic for the first nine commandments. Tenth = Covet = Heart = Sermon on the Mount. (Romans 7 and 2 Corinthians 3)" ~ Dr. Toussaint

Great Evidences of Faith è Prayer. Prayer implies God's sovereignty.

Gift of Giving è Gift of Faith. Exceed the tithe (10%), give like the Macedonians (2 Cor. 8 and 9). Tithing preceded the Law.

Paul provided three encouragements for the Corinthian church to give (2 Cor. 8:7-9):

  1. Give out of Poverty—Like the Macedonians
  2. Macedonia is the Standard, not the tithe (10%)
  3. Give with a Great—Joyful, Cheerful—Heart

Always have two to three people with good reputations handle the church's money. The pastor should keep their hands off the $$$. (2 Cor. 8:16-24)

Examine yourself, instead of others (2 Cor. 13:5). Test yourself with the anticipation of approval.
