A Cheerful Giver
Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue in the book of 2nd Corinthians with Chapter 9 and in our text we see Paul reminding us that God loves a cheerful giver for it is an expression of worship. In God's reply to our worship He blesses us with harvests of bountiful blessings. In making application we see this same principle at work as those who sow sparingly reap sparingly and those who sow bountifully will reap bountifully. Today some try to manipulate this principle for personal gain but the truth is our giving to God is a heart expression in worship to our God for where our treasure is there is our heart also. How about you? Do you give to the Lord? Let us learn from our text today and Paul's reminder that our Lord loves a cheerful giver, as it is an expression of worship, and He acknowledges our worship to Him allowing us to reap what we sow.
