Proven Principles of Generosity and Overseas Investing (Part 1)

by Pastor Afolabi Oladele

The proven principles of generosity and overseas investing are seen in Ecclesiastes 11:1-6.

Give generously, for your gifts will return to you later. Divide your gifts among many, for in the days ahead you yourself may need much help.When the clouds are heavy, the rains come down; when a tree falls, whether south or north, the die is cast, for there it lies. If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done. God’s ways are as mysterious as the pathway of the wind and as the manner in which a human spirit is infused into the little body of a baby while it is yet in its mother’s womb. Keep on sowing your seed, for you never know which will grow—perhaps it all will (Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 TLB).

This was thoughtfully and actively expanded upon in 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 (NLT).

Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others (2 Corinthians 9:6‭-‬8 NLT) .
