WORDS TO PONDER .....
“There are laws of harvest that operate not only in the natural, but also in the spiritual realm. Paul is illustrating this fact by drawing attention to the farmer who sows his spring crop. This man knows that what he has sown in the spring he will harvest in the fall. It is just one of those unalterable laws that he will reap what he has sown. Moreover, the farmer is cognizant of the fact that the proportion of his reaping will be determined by the proportion of his sowing. If he is foolish enough to sow sparingly he will reap sparingly; on the other hand, if he is wise enough to sow bountifully he will also reap bountifully. This is a profound principle in all areas of Christian experience, and especially in the area of giving. The believer is to understand that giving is not a question of scattering, but of sowing. It is not a contribution; it is an investment. Thus all giving constitutes a challenge to our faith. No farmer sows without exercising simple faith in the law of harvest. Indeed, if he had no faith he would not sow at all.”
Stephen F. Olford
"Our Lord's teachings as to money gifts, if obeyed, would forever banish all limitations on church work and all concern about supplies."
“The making of money for the sake of money is folly, and the very basest and most vicious folly at that.”
Albert J. Beveridge
“Too many appeals to give have been made from the changing standpoint of a particular need, while the standpoint that never changes is the believer’s relation to God as a steward. If a pastor would have a spiritual church let him diligently, year upon year, lead his people to appreciate the fact that they are God’s stewards and are responsible to Him for the use of all property and wealth.”
Charles A. Cook
“One of the secrets of D. L. Moody's continual power and usefulness was his entire freedom from the love of money. Mr. Moody might have been a wealthy man, but money had no charms for him. He loved to gather money for God's work; he refused to accumulate money for himself. He told me during the World's Fair that if he had taken, for himself, the royalties on the hymnbooks which he had published, they would have amounted, at that time, to a million dollars. But Mr. Moody refused to touch the money. He had a perfect right to take it, for he was responsible for the publication of the books and it was his money that went into the publication of the first of them.”
