One "Cheerful" act of mercy becomes an "Act of GOD". To the carnal mind, gifts to the needy is money thrown away; but when given in GOD'S love, it is a seed sown, from which we can expect many increases. When someone receives a gift in Faith and Love it not only helps meet their needs, and they are not only relieved, but they see the Hand of GOD in this relief and give GOD the Glory of HIS Grace! They give thanks to GOD beyond all expression, measure or boundaries! Temporal gifts, when given the way JESUS means for them to be given, become the seed for Abundant Spiritual Gifts. Cheerful giving results in the wants and needs being provided and Spontaneous Thanksgiving glorifying GOD! 2 Corinthians 9:12, "...this service not only supplieththe need of the poor, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto GOD." Maybe this is where we learn, "it is more Blessed to give than to receive", and that LOVE GROWS WHERE IT IS PLANTED.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
