And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance,
so that by always having enough of everything,
you may share abundantly in every good work.
Corinthians 9, Verse 8
Not only does God provide us with “every blessing”, he does so “in abundance”. The word abundance makes me think of ripe peaches and big fluffy pillows and comforters, and women in the third trimester of their pregnancy. It suggests fullness. And that is how our God takes care of us – fully, completely.
What we need to be aware of is that we have our part to play in this “fullness”, this provision. As we accept the gifts and blessings that God showers upon us, let us open our hearts and our minds to those still in need. Let us remember to “share abundantly” and be as generous with others as God is with us.
