    2 Corinthians 9: 6-15                                 

    The spiritual life is an adventure that takes us places and provides us experiences that are amazing and hard to describe. Paul is talking about the generous sense in which God dealing with us that needs to be replicated in our daily lives. This is a lifestyle choice that confronts selfishness and isolation. This quality of generosity recognizes the biblical truth that one cannot out give God. He blesses our lives lavishly.
