From Your Generosity.
2Corinthians 9:10 (GNT) “And God, who supplies seed for the sower and bread to eat, will also supply you with all the seed you need and will make it grow and produce a rich harvest from your generosity.”
Being generous works same way forgiving others works.
It is in the Lords prayer we learnt that our father in heaven will forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
It is worthy to note that our forgiveness is based on our ability to forgive others. If we do not forgive others their sin against us, how then will our heavenly father forgive us?
As it works with forgiving others, it is also the same way it works with being generous to others.
If we are generous and we give with all gladness and cheerfulness, our heavenly father will also give to us same way we give to others. This he made clear in the book of 2Corinthians 9:10 that God will supply us with all the things we need according to our generosity.
I want to encourage someone not to complain when its time to give your time, materials or knowledge to a cause or to others, even to the church. Give has God lays it in your heart and give cheerfully, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2Corinthians 9:7; “You should each give, then, as you have decided, not with regret or out of a sense of duty; for God loves the one who gives gladly.“)
PRAYER: Lord, as you have laid it in my heart to give generously, grant me the grace to be able to look beyond what’s in it for me.
