Week 47 Devo – FRIDAY

The Church Is Sent to Encourage New Believers

We should reject the teaching and principles of the prosperity movement, which claims that following Jesus will make you wealthy and prosperous in this life. Still, when you read verses 10–15, there are some pretty clear promises. If you’re generous, you don’t have to worry about what you’ve “lost.” God will take care of our needs when we are trusting Him through generosity.

The joy of generosity is that it both supplies the needs of the saints and glorifies God (2 Corinthians 9:12–13).

We should be looking for opportunities to show generosity toward others. There are people in need all around us, and God can use you to bless them. The question is whether or not we have the eyes to see them and a willingness to move to action.

How can you be a blessing to those who are less fortunate than you?
