Enough - Consecration Sunday
The Miracle of Generosity

How do you explain a miracle? Well by definition, you don’t. But there is a miracle in the transformation that takes place in those who become generous with others. Especially, generous with those they may not know, with those who can’t return the favor, with those who are in need. We celebrate the generosity offered by the people of Sugar River Church and the miracle of ministry and care that is generated by this generosity. We gather on this Sunday to give thanks, stand in awe of what God has and is doing through the faithfulness of this generous community of faith.

2 Corinthians 9:6-12

2 Corinthians 9:6-12

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written,

“He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever.”

10 He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. 11 You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God. 12 For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God. (ESV)
