We are only 5 days away from what will be a historic Sunday at our church, Commitment Sunday. As you begin to think about pledging, you might have noticed that there is a lot of wisdom packed in today’s Bible passage.
The Apostle Paul tells us that when we sow generosity, we will be enriched to continue in generosity. We often don’t talk about this in churches today because we’re afraid of sounding like the “prosperity gospel,” but there is indeed a truth in Scripture that if you give from a pure heart, you can’t “out give God.” He will indeed provide for you.
And not only that, verse 12 tells us that our generosity is not only serving the Lord’s people, but is like an “expression of thanks to God.” We’re told that others will praise God because of our obedience and generosity. What an amazing thought for the day!
