”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: 6-7
These are two of my favorite verses because it talks about giving cheerfully, without expecting something in return. If we are lead to give a donation to a church or to a missionary, we should give it without expecting to get something out of it. This also includes helping someone, because it is still giving them our time. If we are helping our siblings or parents by cleaning the kitchen for them or asking them to do something with us, we should do it without complaining and conditions.
”Be hospitable to one another without grumbling.”-1 Peter 4:9
We need to do our best to give cheerfully, whatever it may be. That doesn’t mean that we have to give everything we own to someone, we also need to use discernment because you might not know if someone could be tricking you into giving something to them when God told you not to. There needs to be a balance. But even when you give cheerfully, the Lord will still bless you.
I hope I was able to encourage all of you with something today. Goodbye darlings!
