“But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”
Those that sow little reap little. Those that sow much reap much. This principle is applied to our giving to the Lord. We are to give according to what we purpose in our hearts, not out of a feeling of obligation. We should want to give. We should give cheerfully, because that is the kind of giver that God loves.
Lord, make me a cheerful giver. Help me to give out of the overflow of my love for You and Your work and not out of obligation. I desire to see Your gospel advance around the world. Please help me to cheerfully give to missions to help accomplish that goal.
