God wants us to be cheerful givers. This is some exciting news!
Did you know our loving Father will provide seeds so we can plant (invest) and produce a great harvest (2 Corinthians 9:6-10)?
However, when God gives us seeds, we are to plant (invest) numerous seeds in return. Why? Because a farmer who plants only a few seeds will receive a small crop.
On the other hand, a farmer who plants generously will get a large crop.
Nevertheless, after God gives us an abundant harvest, we cannot forget to continuously decide in our hearts how much we will cheerfully give back to others.
Thus, as we develop this habit of sowing and reaping, God will generously provide all we need, and we will have plenty left over to share.
Finally, people will glorify God when we cheerfully invest in them or their ministries.
Beloved, God will reveal to us which individuals or ministries we need to give to, so don't worry about making a mistake. Just pray and the Holy Spirit will guide us.
Then after He reveals the ones we need to invest in, let us give cheerfully. Then the recipient (s) will praise God and pray for us with "deep affection" (verses 13-14, NLT), and God's Kingdom will expand in our communities.
