The apostle Paul was thankful for the generosity of the church in Philippi toward his ministry, but perhaps not why you would think. He was not concerned about having his needs met, Christ did that even if Paul lacked many things we consider necessities. Rather he thanked God that their generosity was fruit of Christ working in them and through them as a part of their worship. Paul saw that contentment in Christ fueled generosity for Christ.
