I miss y’all A passage I have been reading has been on my mind quite a bit so I thought I’d share it with you in hopes that it blesses you as it has blessed me.
2 Corinthians 9:6 “But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”
There’s quite a bit here but some main points God has helped me understand are the following: even during this pandemic, God always provides that we have do not lack and that we can do good works! He has opened my eyes to give in certain ways, whether my time, prayers, or even financially when I didn’t think I could. Before this post gets too long, one other point He helped me realize is that the generous giver reaps bountifully but not in a way I thought.
So when I first read that part, I thought that if for example, I help one person then I would reap the benefits of helping that one person. However, God takes your gift to that person and makes it abound! When God is in the picture, He then gives grace to that person to help another and spread His good works. Specifically, I’ve heard how a Christian ministry called Kids Alive asks for donations that help young at risk children all over the world. When people give and pray for a child they sponsor, God blesses that child to then be a blessing to others when they are grown. I’ve heard those testimonies and if you’d like to hear some, message me. The sponsor sure does reap bountifully when seeing how the child they sponsor grows to be a light of God for many others
