He will give back to you sevenfold

“With each contribution show a cheerful countenance, and pay your tithes in a spirit of joy. Give to the Most High as he has given to you, generously, according to your means. For the LORD is one who always repays, and he will give back to you sevenfold.” (SIR 35: 11-13)

One of the languages of love is giving gifts. We love to show our love in small gifts, signs of remembering or just to remind someone that we are always close. The same is with our relationship with Our Lord. Our gifts for Him are more spiritual or less material, like our time we dedicate for prayer, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament or all kinds of donations to support His Church. We should remember that there is a special competition in these areas—“He will give back to you sevenfold.” And sevenfold doesn’t mean just seven; in Bible language it means more like infinity. In His generosity He is unbeatable.

“Blessed are you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth; you have revealed to little ones the mysteries of the Kingdom.” (Gospel Acclamation)
