God promises to bless us abundantly as we are faithful to sow into His church. That includes our time, energy and finances. It means we serve on a ministry team and invest in our congregation and tithe on our paychecks. It means we participate in the great commission to go and make disciples. Sometimes that involves going on a mission trip but sometimes it's just being willing to share the gospel with your classmates and coworkers. However the Holy Spirit calls you to serve, God will bless your obedience. When we give to our church and join in efforts to make new disciples, we're worshipping God. When we obey as He directs, especially when we don't want to, God is faithful to refill us. The months when money is tight but you trust God with your finances and still put your 10% in the offering plate, you are sowing seed into good ground and you will see a harvest. The bible promises that we will be honored for our obedience and blessed for our faithfulness. God didn't have to make that deal with us. He's the creator of the universe -- all that we have is His anyway -- but He wanted to give us the gift of that reward because He loves us so much. As we continue to give of ourselves and our resources, God increases His favor over our lives. The more we trust Him, the more He uses us. The more we give Him, the more He showers on us in return. He's a loving Father who delights in giving gifts to His kids.
