Lesson 8. Deut. 8:11-14, 18; 2 Cor. 9:6-15. (a) Whether one is poor or in comfort­ able circumstances (if he is a Christian) depends entirely on his own initiative and industry, not upon the Lord’s gift or with­ holding of “the power to get wealth.” (b) Christian giving is a heart matter, and the kind of giving manifests the kind of heart, (c ) The statements o f 1 Corin­ thians 9 :7 have no vital connection with the truth o f the following verse. Lesson 9. Mk. 1:16-20; Acts 26:12-19. (a) The fishermen disciples responded to Jesus’ call because He promised them a place in His coming kingdom, (b) Saul’s persecution o f Christians was on his own initiative; he had authority from nobody.
