St. Matthew Baptist Church
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/NKJV).
People may hesitate to give generously to God if they worry about having enough money left over to meet their own needs. The Apostle Paul assured the Corinthians that God as able to meet their needs. The person who gives only a little will receive a little in return. A giving attitude is more important than the amount given. God is concerned about how a person gives from their heart. God Himself is a cheerful giver, consider all he has done for us. He is please when we who are created in his image give generously and joyfully.
