A Cheerful Giver

But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.  So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver
2 Corinthians 9:6

A funny thing happens when you get in the habit of sharing what God has given you.  The more you give, the more you realize how blessed you are and the more grateful you become ~ which inspires you to share even more of what you have with others.  It's a wonderful cycle that loosens your grip on material things so both your hands and your heart can more freely reach out to those around you.

Give and you will receive.  You will be given much.  Passed down, shaken together, and running over, it will spill into your lap.  The way you give to others is the way God will give to you.
Luke 6:38

You can see the world standing tall,
but to witness the Savior you have to get on your knees.

Until Next Time
Blessed to be Blessed
Thank You Jesus

  3. It was my Grandma's favourite saying..'Remember , it is more blessed to give than to receive'.
    I've always tried to live by it.
