40 Days of Prayer
This devotional series is in conjunction with the current curriculum series all Life and Home Groups are currently going through.
2 Corinthians 9:6-11
6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 9 As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”
10 Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. 11 You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
God saved you to employ you in His Kingdom work. He is the provider of what you need not only to live but to live on mission. When you give back to Him a portion of what He’s previously given you, the results are amazing: bounty, cheer, abounding grace, sufficiency, abundance, multiplication, increase, harvest, liberality, and thanksgiving. Purpose in your heart to give your time, talent, and treasure to God trusting that He will return more than you can give.
