August 31 Lesson 14
GENEROSITY IN THE MIDST OF POVERTY
DEVOTIONAL READING: 1 Corinthians 13:1–7 BACKGROUND SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 8, 9
2 CORINTHIANS 8:1–14
1 Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia; 2 How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality. 3 For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing of themselves; 4 Praying us with much [entreaty] that we would receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of the ministering to the saints. 5 And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God. 6 Insomuch that we desired Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also finish in you the same grace also. 7 Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace als…

Lesson for August 31, 2014 Generosity in the Midst of Poverty2 Corinthians 8, 9 This treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD. It is published in the August 24 issue of The Lookout magazine, and is also available online at www.lookoutmag.com. ______ By Sam E. Stone  Despite the problems noted in 1 Corinthians (such as division, pride, and immorality), the church had many good qualities. Generous giving, however, was an area in which they needed to improve. In today’s text Paul used various appeals to encourage them to grow in generosity.
An Example2 Corinthians 8:1-5
Paul introduced a new subject in this letter by saying, And now, brothers and sisters . . . He began by describing the Macedonian churches. Paul had established churches in that region (about 100 miles from Corinth) on his second missionary journey (Acts 18:1-18; 2 Corinthians 9:2). He noted that their grace was prompted by the self-giving grace of Jesu…

August 31

Walking with Jesus
Isaiah 65:1–66:24; Luke 24:13–53; Job 14:11–22

Imagine encountering Jesus on the road to Emmaus. It would be a surreal experience. You’re walking to the next town, and you start a conversation with a man beside you, only to find out later that you’ve been talking with the resurrected Son of God. Even more surreal, the topic of conversation up to your moment of discovery has been the death of the man walking with you (Luke 24:13–35).

I have often wondered what it would be like to meet Jesus face to face—to have Him explain to me how He exists in the biblical text from Moses, in all the prophets, and in all Scripture (Luke 24:27). How different would my life be after that experience? Would I rethink everything I had known and heard—perhaps everything I do?

Asking these questions is not only healthy, it also turns on our spiritual GPS. Are we on the path God has called us to? Have we strayed in one direction or another? Are we caught in some odd roundabout wher…
