A few months ago ….. we planted some mixed bulbs that looked like dried up onions! We put them deep in the soil ….. covered them up ….. and forgot about them through winter. But sure enough ….. we’ve enjoyed a variety of daffodils ….. crocuses ….. and now tulips! The Bible talks about giving being like planting a seed. There will always be a return! But the giving must come first. That’s because God is more interested in our faith than our money. When we give we are investing in His Kingdom ….. so we should expect a harvest.
‘Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you’ (Luke 6:38)
