Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 2 Corinthians 9:6
God has blessed you to be a blessing to others. He expects you to exercise good stewardship in those areas where you have been blessed; whether you are blessed materially, financially, or with certain talents and abilities …”to whom much is given, much is required” (Luke 12:48).
But sometimes our blessings can get in the way of our generosity—they can bring out the selfishness in us. If we don’t use our gifts for others, those gifts may begin to dissipate.
