Reap generously

I opened a Dove chocolate wrapper and found these words: “What you give will find countless ways back to you.” I thought it paired nicely with this verse from Second Corinthians. This really applies in much of life. Those who invest time and energy into something, whether it’s learning to play piano or building relationships or increasing their stamina, will see the skill or the closeness or the strength growing. Those who choose to tackle the same situations half-heartedly won’t experience much change. If you long for a closer walk with the Lord, it won’t happen without some effort. Sow generously–give your time and attention and heart to Him–and you will reap generously.
