Scripture: 2 Corinthians 8:10–15

  1. Why is it important that we have the right desires with regards to giving?

  2. What is the difference between wanting to give and planning to give? What steps can you take to ensure that you not only desire to give, but that you actually follow through in giving?

  3. How would you distinguish between the generous, compassionate, mutual love that we are to have for one another in the church and mandated government redistribution?
