Vital Signs - Sunday, January 26, 2020

God blesses us because He’s a good God. He blesses us so we can bless others.

When we are generous, God often gives us more so we can give more.

In 2 Corinthians Paul wrote about sowing and reaping. It describes God’s ability to make His grace “abound”—to overflow in our lives.

As it is written: “He has scattered abroad His gifts to the poor; His righteousness endures forever.” Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God (2 Corinthians 9:9-11

God wants to bless our lives spiritually, relationally, and materially—or, as Paul says, “in every way.” Why? So we can be generous “on every occasion.”

That’s God’s genius in generosity. He guards our hearts against greed by blessing us when we give.
