Sow...a needle pulling thread?...nah
2 Corinthians 9:6 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Simple question: What areas of your life are you holding back from God? Paul is referring to giving in this passage but I want to open it up a little wider.
I have witness many things over the past 24 years in ministry and 1 is this. People who surrender each and every of their lives to the Lord navigate life more easily and receive God's blessings more bountifully (nice word there huh!). If you surrender just a little of your life (finances included) to the Lord you will be blessed proportionately. If you surrender much to the Lord you will also be blessed in the same way...but maybe not the same means.
It is Monday morning as I write this short devotional. So as you begin this week, in what area of your life can you surrender more to Jesus than you did yesterday? Begin there and walk in joy as you will finish the day more surrendered than when you began. That is forward progress and that is growth!
