2 Corinthians 9:6-7

2-corinthians-9-6-7“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” ~ 2 Corinthians 9:6‭-‬7 ESV

If we believe that everything belongs to God, and the things we have are entrusted to us by Him, we should always be cheerful in returning it to Him! Why should we be reluctant or reserved? If we’re obedient, do we trust the Lord to take care of us? Didn’t Jesus say that the Father takes care of the birds and dresses the lilies? This could be giving of our finances, giving of our time, giving of other resources that we’ve been entrusted with. We should give all that God lays on our hearts cheerfully, and trust that He will take care of the details.

Bless someone today! Sow bountifully! Reap bountifully!
