“Coming Up Short”; Jeffrey Sartain’s sermon, Oct. 26

“Acts of generosity draw goodness and blessing toward us. When we give, we receive blessings far greater than what we have given. I’m not preaching a ‘prosperity gospel’ that says you will get back, literally, more money that you give away. What I’m saying is that giving of our treasure in a disciplined, ongoing and extravagant way like Zacchaeus prepares us to receive profound spiritual blessings that otherwise might pass us by.”

From Jeffrey Sartain’s sermon, preached on Oct. 26, 2014.
