Supply and Multiply

“He who sows sparingly

will also reap sparingly,

and he who sows bountifully

will also reap bountifully.

God loves a cheerful giver.

Now may He who supplies

seed to the sower

and bread for food,

supply and multiply

the seed you have sown

and increase the fruits of your righteousness.”

2 Corinthians 9:6-7, 10 NKJV

Since every bit of everything good

comes from God,

we can hold it loosely and easily

allow it to flow on to others.

Even if the good Lord Himself

takes it from our hands,

we can rest assured that

He’s opening our hands

to receive something better.

Whatever we get from Him

benefits us most

when we send it on to someone else.

It’s God’s law of supply and demand.

He multiplies everything He’s given us

in ridiculously lavish proportion

greater than what we’ve given.

And He tops it off with whipped cream and a cherry,

the sweetness of joy & love & patience

& peace & goodness

& greater & greater ability

to trust Him more & more.

Amen and amen.
