Verse of the Day

February 20, 2007


Here’s today’s verse of the day:

6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8 (NKJV)

From the Nelson Study Bible:

9:6 The law of the harvest is referred to repeatedly in Scripture. Paul applied it to giving. Giving is like sowing seed. The amount of the harvest is determined by the amount of the seed sown.

9:7 Knowing the law of the harvest, each believer should give as he purposes in his heart. The believer is to give freely and cheerfully, not out of compulsion, and without regret.

9:8 If we give, God is able to give us more so that we can perform other good works. In other words, God sees to it that the generous giver will not suffer want. Instead, God generously provides for those who give so that they can continue to do so.
