In God's Word, we learn that in our giving:
- We cannot give just to give.
- We must not give if our heart is not in the right place to give.
- In our giving, God will provide everything we need to be a blessing, the financial resources, knowledge, plans, and instructions.
God will make sure that we are in-line with His divine purpose. When we allow ourselves to be used by God even when we feel like we "don't have enough" or we "don't feel like it", we are then learning how to sow generously and how to be a cheerful giver.
This week, I saw a personal example of God working in my life as a blessing to another. I gave a financial blessing of $50 and was not expecting anything in return. However, God had another plan and on the next day, He had me park my car right next to 10% ($5 bill) of what I gave on the day before. When I opened my car door I happened to look down and saw it. I was completely shocked but realized a few seconds later God was confirming His Word to me, in 2 Corinthians 9:6-15. God is alive and working in our lives. What an example, right?
In today's Bible discussion video below, we learn more about this in 2 Corinthians 9: 6-15. If you have your Bible or Bible app, you can read or follow along with me.
