I want you to know about the gift that keeps on giving. It’s grace, isn’t it? Certainly, when we think about gifts, we think about money, time, objects given to people we know and love, but true grace is an unmerited gift or sacrifice to people we may not know (or may not even like). The people in Asia Minor had experienced this unmerited favour of God and were brought to their knees begging to be part of the grace-ful opportunities that marked life in the body of Christ.
So was the church in Corinth.
2 Corinthians 9:6-15
