“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” (2 Corinthians 9:7 NAS).
God created you and me. He numbered the hairs on our heads, and His Only Son died a horrible death to pay for your sins and mine—if we trust and obey what Jesus offered—His own blood to pay for our sins and shame. Why would we not be eager to give back to Him a portion of all He’s lavished upon you and me? Abundant grace? Sufficiency in all things? An eternal home with Him? Hallelujah! Sign me up!
