God loves a cheerful giver

June 21, 2017 6:00 am

“Brothers and sisters, consider this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 COR 9: 6-7)

God is the first “cheerful giver.” We can’t compete with His bountiful graces given to us. When we have a free and creative gift for somebody, we can always add one more element—cheerfulness. This makes our gifts perfect. 

“Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him and we will come to him.”(Gospel Acclamation)
