Halfway there! As much as I’m enjoying writing every day, it’s hard to fit it in and I’m feeling tired. But, I’m pushing on!
Props to all my fellow 31 Dayers – we can do it!
Today, I’d like to talk about generosity. It’s great when you are given something – when a need is met, or when an act of kindness happens when you least expect it.
One of the 31 Day blogs I am reading is Starr. Her theme? 31 Days of Giveaways! Yes, that means what you think it does – each post gives readers a chance to comment and put in an entry to win something. I think that is sweet! What a giving heart.
Speaking of giveaways, here is another reason I’m discussing generosity:
DaySpring.com is celebrating all of the wonderful Write 31 Days readers who are following all of us crazy writers this year. Can you believe there are almost 2,000 of us taking this challenge? And what makes it great is you – yes you the reader.
So, you should be celebrated!
To enter to win a $500 DaySpring shopping spree, just click on the graphic & follow the giveaway widget instructions. Good luck all!
2 Corinthians 9:6-15
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written,
“He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever.”
He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God. For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God. By their approval of this service, they will glorify God because of your submission that comes from your confession of the gospel of Christ, and the generosity of your contribution for them and for all others, while they long for you and pray for you, because of the surpassing grace of God upon you. Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift!
