Are You Producing Thanksgiving?
Generosity and on mission living comes with a promise: It will “produce thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:11 ESV). Or as another translation says, “Then many people will thank God…” (2 Corinthians 9:11 CEV), as a response to the generous, on mission Christian. So, who is giving thanks today, because of you and your investment in God’s kingdom that has impacted them? Has your life of obedience to God produced thanksgiving in others? Is the community giving thanks for your church because of the on mission members scattering for their good?
A goal for next Thanksgiving: Produce Thanksgiving to God in others by following Jesus into an ON Mission life lived FOR Others.
