“How I praise the Lord that you are concerned about me again. I know you have always been concerned for me, but you didn’t have the chance to help me.” Philippians 4:10
One of the keys to authentic generosity is genuine concern for the work and ministry of Jesus Christ. Many people give because they know they should should which is obedience and that is a wonderful thing. It is a much deeper thing when we give because we genuinely care about the difference that is being made by whatever and whomever we’re giving. The word concern comes up twice here in this verse. The translation here is “thoughtful care”. Paul is moved by their desire to support and promote the ministry that he was doing.
