Blessed by Giving - Sharing


Today marks 17 out of 18 devotionals based on the concept of being blessed by giving. (I can hear it now, hurrah - only 1 more). I have spent this much time on this topic because in the Scriptures it is a vital topic - outranked by the Gospel itself. Jesus spoke often about our need for giving. Paul wrote about. Moses wrote about it. Today, Paul challenges the Corinthian believers to share by generously giving.

"For if the eagerness is there, it is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what he does not have. It is not that there may be relief for others and hardship for you, but it is a question of equality at the present time your surplus is [available] for their need, so that their abundance may also become [available] for your need, that there may be equality. As it has been written: The person who gathered much did not have too much, and the person who gathered little did not have too little." (2 Cor. 8: 12 - 15)

He reminds us that as we share with others in their need, others will share with us in our need. Today, seek to find ways to help others around you. Let us put into practice the challenges we have been receiving from God's Word this month.
