TEXT: 2 CORINTHIANS 9:6–8 (NLT)
Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.
What does it mean to give cheerfully? Does your current giving of your time, talents, and treasure model cheerful and generous giving?
“God, help me to experience joy in my giving. Settle in my heart exactly what it is You want me to give.”
Based on what you have sown in your giving, what can you expect to reap? Think of one way that you can give (sow) generously this week to an individual, to your stu- dent ministry, or to your campus.

We can never out-give God. If we give little, we’ll receive little. If we joyfully give much, we’ll receive much. #youthalive
