INSPIRING DAILY DEVOTIONAL ® … Be magnanimous in your giving
Text(s) for today: Read Lk. 6:38
“But this I say he which soweth sparingly shall reap sparingly and he that soweth bountifully shall reap… bountifully” 2 Cor. 9:6 KJV
When preachers tell people to give big, they’re not doing a new thing . They’re only continuing what started in the Bible as recorded in today’s key verse – just amplifying this tenets of scripture, re-echoing the divine words of God.
Obedience to this tenet, just like all other tenets of scripture will bring one untold blessing and usher one into a deeper walk with God. This blessing may be financial blessing, material blessing, academic, blessing of good health, etc.
“To sow sparingly” means “to give economically, in a restrained manner; i.e. scantily, moderately.” It means “to sow stingly or meanly.”
“To sow bountifully” means “to give liberally or generously, ie to give abundantly.” It means “ to be magnanimous in your giving.”
Let’s be magnanimous in our giving to God and others . If you’re a student and a floor mate asks you for stew don’t be one of those folks that dish out scanty amounts. When you’re supporting a worthy cause in your club or association, give bountifully- be magnanimous . If you’re a worker, as you support your parents/siblings financially, do it generously-be magnanimous. As you do that as a king never walks without his escorts/subjects so will you never walk in life without prosperity surrounding you on all sides. That’s what happens when you reap bountifully. Praise God!
