Giving without expecting anything in return is not the norm these days. More often than not, when people give, they anticipate something in return.
But when Florian Lee learned how to sow financial seeds, give cheerfully and unselfishly, she need not ask nor expect. Surprising returns and consecutive blessings followed her footsteps. She reaped quite a number of good fruits. After all, she is sowing on good ground.
Planting the Seeds
Florian, a real estate broker from Pampanga, started giving to The 700 Club in 2009. Since then, she has been faithfully allocating a portion of her monthly salary for her membership.
She said, “I enjoy watching The 700 Club Asia because it depicts different stories from all walks of life.”
Having witnessed on the show how her donations reach thousands of Filipinos through Operation Blessing’s humanitarian efforts and programs, Florian committed to support its vision through a monthly pledge. And this gesture even so brought her faith to a new level.
Blessings in Tough Times
It was in December 2009 when Florian had a miscarriage. She was supposed to give birth to twins. Yet the heartbreaking truth didn’t stop her from fulfilling her commitment to God. She continued to fulfill her monthly pledge to The 700 Club. And she reaped what she sowed.
“I honestly didn’t know where to get the money to pay the hospital bills. I became worried. Surprisingly, I received a cash incentive from work and used it to pay all the hospital expenses,” she recalled.
She added, “Having lost my precious babies, it was also God who helped me get through my pain and grieving. His overwhelming love and comfort surrounded me and my whole family.”
Then that same year, she and her husband were blessed financially and had their most awaited church wedding. Once more, they exchanged their marriage vows. Both agreed it was sweeter the second time because it was held in a church.
Her succession of blessings didn’t end there. Florian was promoted as manager and was even assigned as head of not just one but three new projects! In addition, their company’s sales went up under her leadership.
“God’s provisions are always on time. When I need it the most, blessings just come. My family never starves and we never lack,” Florian testified.
“Now I’ve proven that sowing into the Lord’s Kingdom is all worth it. God is concerned with every detail of my life. He knows all my needs and worries. I just have to trust Him and seek His Kingdom first. I will never regret giving to His ministry in The 700 Club!” | by Deb Bataller, CBN Asia
