Tis the Season

I will share a verse that came to my heart yesterday as I found out about a family that has a time of need.

2 Corinthians 9:6 to 15

Verse 6: My point is this: The person who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the person who sows generously will also reap generously.

Verse 7: Each one of you should give just as he has decided in his heart or under compulsion, because God loves a cheerful giver.

Verse 8: and God is able to make all grace overflow to you so that because you have enough of everything in every way at all times, you will overflow in every good work.

Verse 9: Just as it is written, "He has scattered widely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness remains forever."

Verse 10: Now God who provides seed for the sower and bread for the food will provide and multiply your supply of seed and will cause the harvest of your righteousness to grow.

Verse 11: You will be enriched in every way so that you may be generous on every occasion, which is producing through us thanksgiving to God,

Verse 12: because the service of this ministry is not only providing for the needs of saints, but is also overflowing with many thanks to God.

Verse 13: Through the evidence of this service, they will glorify God because of your obedience to your confession in the gospel of Christ adn the generosity of your sharing with them and with everyone.

Verse 14: And in their prayers on your behalf they long for you because of the extraordinary grace God has shown to you.

Verse 15: Thanks be to God for his indescrible gift!
