Encouraging Generosity

But I will say this to encourage your generosity: the one who plants little harvests little, and the one who plants plenty harvests plenty. Giving grows out of the heart—otherwise, you’ve reluctantly grumbled “yes” because you felt you had to or because you couldn’t say “no,” but this isn’t the way God wants it. For we know that “God loves a cheerful giver.” God is ready to overwhelm you with more blessings than you could ever imagine so that you’ll always be taken care of in every way and you’ll have more than enough to share. Remember what is written about the One who trusts in the Lord:

He scattered abroad; He gave freely to the poor;
    His righteousness endures throughout the ages (vv. 6-9).

    So true, the giver benefits as much or more than one who receives. Thanks for the post!!
