Scripture: 2nd Corinthians 9:2
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.
Thought for the Day: Anne Frank wrote the simple words:
No one has ever become poor by giving.
In our modern day – money-driven society – we tend to hear those words in terms of giving our resources away. I’m not going to pretend to know exactly what Anne Frank was thinking, but there were multiple people who risked their lives to try to hide Anne and her family. Some of those people were arrested for what they had done. Those who are willing to sacrifice beyond their bank accounts are the ones who are subversively transforming the world. Don’t get me wrong, the sacrifice can impact the bank account as well, but too often our fear of economic poverty conceives an insolvency of the soul.
Prayer: Provide me peace of mind and spirit, O Merciful God, as I seek to be generous wherever the potential for generosity exists within me. I may not yet be ready as fear or insecurity encourages me to horde, yet I trust in your Spirit to continue to make within me a heart that desires to give. Amen.
