The concept of giving can be a difficult one to address. Even more difficult is a concept within that one: Sowing and Reaping. This past Sunday we watched a message from Craig Groeschel, Pastor of LifeChurch. I think that he addressed it beautifully. Giving joyfully to God does not immediately guarantee riches beyond imagining or longevity or a lack of sickness. But it does always have some kind of return on our investment. Give joyfully and generously and you never know what God will do for you. I really appreciated Craig's main point: "What you keep is all you have. What you give away God will multiply." How are you going to let God multiply in your life?
