“And God is able to bless you abundantly, SO THAT in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”
2 Corinthians 9:8
“You will be enriched in every way SO THAT you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.”
2 Corinthians 9:11
God certainly gives abundance in finances to some but what many confused Christians don’t understand is that when God gives money it is for his kingdom, not ours. His will is not our abundance but our usefulness. He gives us resources not so we can bury them but so that in love we can leverage them to achieve his purposes. This is it. He didn’t give us extra money because it’s our birthday or because he wanted to pop in and say he loves us with a new luxury car or mansion. It’s because he wants to be able to multiply his kingdom through his children. There is no more joyous place than to set all our wealth at the feet of Jesus and let the hand of God manipulate it for his glory. To the world it will look foolish but to heaven it will look beautiful.
