Scripture reading for August 9th: 2nd Corinthians 9
Key Scriptures for over-comers: 2nd Corinthians 9:6-8 “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Ans God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times having all you need, you will abound in every good work.”
Being a farmer, I am well aware of the law of sowing and reaping. You must sow before you reap. You have to use enough seed to reap the maximum benefit. The sower must also sow in faith, with a cheerful disposition and expectation of harvest. You harvest more than you sowed because seed multiplies because of God’s amazing grace of design and His blessing for provision. These principles also apply in giving of tithes and offerings to God for His work. If we sow cheerfully and generously, we will reap abundantly! God will shower His grace on us to enable us to continue giving and doing His work!
Observations for over-comers: Believers are cheerful and generous people who give freely and enjoy sufficiency in all things at all times enabling good works to God’s glory! “Praise the Lord. Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who finds great delight in His commands. . . .He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor, his righteousness endures forever; his horn will be lifted high in honor.” (Psalm 112:1,9)
