Oct. 28, 2019 - Generosity

Updated: Jan 24, 2020

In our scripture for this Sunday, the apostle Paul talks about sowing seed. When I read this passage, I thought about the parable of the sower. Jesus told us about a farmer sowing his seed. Without regard to where he was sowing the seed, he planted it everywhere. In some places the ground was very fertile and produced a great harvest. In other places, the ground was not as good, and in still others it was very poor. Nevertheless, the farmer sowed his seed wherever he could.

I don’t know if Paul has this in mind in his letter to the Corinthian Church, but it fits. Paul is telling the church that God has been very generous in providing for us. The unasked question is can we be any less generous in our giving to others?

This Sunday is Commitment Sunday. Each of us is being asked to make a commitment to support the ministries of Main Street United Methodist Church for the coming year. When we became members of this part of the body of Christ, we committed to support it with our gifts.

God has been very generous with us. Can we be any less generous in our support of His Church?

Holy God, thank you for your generosity. Help us to be as generous. Amen.

Always, to God be the glory!
