1 Corinthians 1:4-8

1 Cor 1:4-8: “I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; that in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: so that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

How has God’s grace enriched your life? How should someone respond to being enriched? When you find yourself with an abundance of something, whether it is material or not, what do you do with the surplus? When you come upon someone in need—someone who has less than you have—are you compelled to help them, but only if you have “extra” to spare? What you do with your resources demonstrates the testimony of Christ in you. Are you as generous with the gifts He gave you, as He was when He went to the cross for you? Did he die for just you, or for the naked, hungry, thirsty, widows, and orphans?
