2 Corinthians 9:8 – All Sufficiency in All Things at All Times

Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.

Context: Paul is talking about cheerful giving – those who sow sparingly, reluctantly and under compulsion versus those who sow bountifully, what they have decided in his heart and cheerfully.

2 Corinthians 9:8 – “And God is able to make all grace about to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times you may about in every good work.”

Observations:

  • My good works are not about my ability but God’s ability.
  • Verse 9:10 goes on to say – “He who supplies seed… will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness…”

Application: I must not trust my own abilities or resources, but decide in my heart to freely and cheerfully give to God.  He will supply all sufficiency in all things at all times.

Are you a cheerful giver?
