Sermonette: Sowing and Reaping


Given 06-Oct-03; 16 minutes

description: (hide)

John Ritenbaugh in this offertory message suggests that unfortunately, for many people, much their lives have often been dominated by fear of loss. Fearing loss of face (or loss of image) may lead to lying. Fear of any kind is never an excuse to break any of God's laws. God wants us to learn the principle of reciprocity- that what we sow we will also reap. Generosity and liberality tend to increase and abundance while stinginess and miserliness tend to poverty and squalor. In our relationships with other people, we need to be liberal with our kindness, encouragement, and counsel as well as our financial resources.
