And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen. - Philippians 4:19–20 (ESV) It seems like some subjects are off limits in church. We like talking about theology and Jesus. Leave things like politics and money at the door. In fact, if those (and several other subjects) come up especially from the pulpit, people tend to pull back and even leave churches because of it. This makes pastors and congregations hesitant to say anything at all in these areas. These fears don't seem to bother the Apostle Paul. He has already talked a little politics early in Philippines. In the last half of chapter 4, he has been talking about money. In one sense he is writing a thank you note. (The whole letter to the Philippians could be thought of this way). He wants to give us more. This week we close out our study of Unrestrained Joy in the final few verses talking about money. Paul will point us not only to the generous example of the Philippians, but he will point us beyond them to where and why they were so generous. I want to encourage you to take a look at Phil 4 to prepare your heart and mind for worshiping together on Sunday.
