II Corinthians 9:9-10 ” As it is written: ‘He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.’ Now He Who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. “

As Malachi 3:10 points out to us, You can’t out give God! And Paul wanted us to realize not only this truth, but by quoting Psalm 112:9 here, wanted us to remember that God will supply all our needs. So in return we are to be generous in our giving. For when we give joyfully it deepens our experience of God’s grace…setting our hearts free from material possessions…and with it comes blessings unspeakable in return. But becoming a generous person takes practice…but if you can see yourself as a steward or caretaker of what God has given you…giving to others will take on new meaning. Think on this then… when we sow into another person’s life that which is right and good, it brings about a harvest of blessing into our lives from the Lord.
