10. He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. 11. You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God through us; 12. for the rendering of this ministry not only supplies the needs of the saints but also overflows with many thanksgivings to God. 13. Through the testing of this ministry you glorify God by your obedience to the confession of the gospel of Christ and by the generosity of your sharing with them and with all others, 14. while they long for you and pray for you because of the surpassing grace of God that he has given you. 15. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!
2 Corinthians 9:10-15
God provides for all of us. When we share our gifts and work together in our communities, our schools and our places of worship, everyone benefits. God blesses our endeavors and multiplies the gifts.
Think of ways to support the efforts of your neighbors. These might include patronizing the new grocery store, bookstore, or other local businesses; volunteering at the local school; or attending Bible study at church. Whatever your contribution, it will surely be appreciated.
