Givers Never Lack

Key Verse

“And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.” 2 Corinthians 8:5

Text — 2 Corinthians 8:1-7


Those who understand the law of giving will appreciate the fact that givers never lack. The story was told of a boy who shared his lunch every day with a boy in his class who had no food to eat. As he gave the food, he was blessed with other good things from strangers and people around him. One day, he decided not to share his lunch but ate all. Surprisingly he discovered that no one gave him anything. This made him wonder and then he made up his mind to always give to others.

There is a universal law of giving and givers never lack. In fact, givers always have in return more than what they gave out. The Corinthian brethren were commended by Paul for their culture of giving not only physical gifts but also service to the Lord. They first gave their life and service to God. The question is: Are you giving your service to God? Have you offered yourself as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God? If you have not done that, you must repent and accept Jesus as your personal Saviour and Lord. God will bless you in return.
