Always give something and you’ll always have something to give!

From my time of “coffee with the Lord” this morning…

I was sitting in church one Sunday morning and the offering plates were about to be passed around one more Sunday… one more time.  I didn’t have much in my billfold and just a few coins in my pocket.  It had been a rough month – a lot of unexpected expenses – and I admit I really didn’t feel like I had anything to give… In fact, I really intended to let the offering plate pass me by without putting anything in it…

And God spoke to me, deep in my heart… I believe I heard Him say this to me that day:  “Son, always give something and you’ll always have something to give… I promise!”

That’s in the Bible!  I read it this morning during my devotions!  Here it is…

“Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop.  You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully!”  And God will generously provide all you need! Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others… For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.  Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous.  Thank God for His gift too wonderful for words!  (From 2 Corinthians 9:6–15 NLT)
