Ray Stedman - June 7, 1964
That you Might be Rich
Scripture References: 2 Corinthians 8:9
From Series: "The Christian and his Possessions"
The proper use of money and resources. Principles of Christian giving. "Some of you here feel unloved. I know you do, you have said so. You feel that your life is lacking in this essential ingredient to make it worthwhile, rich, warm. Your lives are barren and cold and a burden to you and a burden to others because of the missing element of love. Now I suggest you try, then, this simple formula that the Apostle gives. Sow love and you will reap love. You who feel that love is lacking, find someone around you and begin to help. An overworked mother, perhaps, who never gets a chance to get away from the continual demands of a brood of children. Take those children and baby sit them for an hour or two and let her have a free moment. Find an underprivileged child and send him to camp this summer, pay his way. Think of some exhausted Sunday School teacher who has been laboring for years without relief in taking care of your children and relieve her for the summer. Take a lonely missionary who is hungering for word from someone, write to him and supply his need, both emotional and material. And when you have finished that deed, turn and find another. This is the simple formula for blessing. Sow! You cannot reap unless you sow. And he who shows sparingly will reap sparingly. He who sows abundantly will reap abundantly. Jesus said it, 'Give and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.' This is the law of life."
