Give Generously

Here’s my point. A stingy sower will reap a meager harvest, but the one who sows from a generous spirit will reap an abundant harvest. 2 Corinthians 9:6 TPT

Some people have difficulty in giving to others. Giving can be a challenge to many people. When Jesus walked this earth, He was a man of compassion, so He lived a lifestyle of serving others. Paul was talking to the Corinthian Church about giving. He wanted to give some guidance to encourage the church members to be generous with their acts of kindness. Paul compared two kinds of people: one stingy and the other generous. In the spring, many gardeners have to reseed their lawns. The objective is to have a thick lush lawns so the gardeners over-seeds the soil.  Every lawn seed will not grow but with over-seeding, you will achieve the results you desire.

Now the generous person is like the gardener who over-seeds his lawn. Verse 7 says, “Let giving flow from your heart, not from a sense of religious duty. Let it spring up freely from the joy of giving—all because God loves hilarious generosity!” So giving is done from the heart and should never be seen as a duty; it’s an act of service unto the Lord. A rich young man approached Jesus because he wanted to inherit eternal life. Jesus began with the basics. The young man had done all those things but he recognized that there was something missing in his life. Jesus told him to sell his goods and give to the poor. This made the young man sad because his wealth had become his god. Has God been replaced in your heart? When God is in control, it’s easy to sow generously.

Thought for Today: Let God sit on the throne of your heart.

Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
