"Double Blessing challenges us to reframe our perception of blessing, seeing God's gifts as opportunities for increased generosity." —Pastor Louie Giglio

While I’m not a proponent of the health and wealth gospel, I find verses 8-11 of 2 Cor. 9 to be nothing short of amazing in terms of a Biblical promise. How else would you interpret words like these? "You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion." With a promise like that how could you not be a generous and cheerful giver?

It’s like turning on a water faucet at home. I’m never afraid that the water will run out, because I know that my faucet is hooked up to the whole Edwards Aquifer. That’s billions of gallons of drinkable water behind my faucet. The only limit is my ability to pay my water bill.

And being generous in giving amounts to being hooked up to the reservoir of a more generous Father than I could even think or imagine. I don’t have to be stingy or miserly knowing that my Father in Heaven has promised to make me rich in every way so that I can be generous on every occasion. The only limit is the limit of my ability to trust God to keep it coming. Knowing this we not only have the capacity for joyful giving, but also for confident giving.
