Today Reminder – 08 Augustus 2016

A reminder for today
Since you excel in so many ways—in your faith, your gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love from us—I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving. (2 Corinthians 8:7)

Giving is one of the most powerful ways to display the heart of Jesus but also one of the hardest. In today’s time inflation and the constant rise of prices plays a huge roll in the way people give. It is easy to give from abundance but not easy when you yourself is going through a tough financial battle. Paul writes here about the churches in Macedonia and how they are all going through massive financial challenges, yet they give freely and the ask to give more. 

What is it that people in such hard times are so willing to give. It all boils down to one little phrase. We walk by faith and not by sight. We live in faith not in what we see. We give in faith and not what we are able to give. So my dear friend, today I challenge us to give more and more freely so that the wonder of our Lord will echo through the hearts of those that are lost. Give from you heart and the Lord will bless you in return. For we will reap what we sow. 

Lord, give us the courage and strength to give more and more so that you will be glorified by our faith. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
