Your Giving is your life
God is trying to teach us through the Scriptures about the tremendous power of giving, but are we getting it? In both the Old and New Testaments, we can see the results of generous giving, and we are taught to give generously and with the right motivation. The world will always come up with reasons why we can’t give, and sometimes we may find ourselves outside of our comfort zone when we follow God’s lead during offering time. But the level of our giving is an indicator of how much we trust Him.
No one has ever become poor by giving.” Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” …“ Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.”
Anyone Can Give
Some people would be inclined to think that only those who are sufficiently endowed financially should give to charity. But one must always remember that giving starts form personal will or from the heart, a thing that every human being has no matter their financial or material standing. So long as whatever is given, whether a service or material impact and difference on the life of the recipient, then it qualifies to be a charitable gift. But it must be given unconditionally ( mean giving with love and passion consistently not seasonally without any expectation of a receiver. At the same time, you do not have to move far from where they are in order to find a worthy cause in which to exercise charity. Numerous statistics are produced each year that show various problems people face all over the world. These people are all around us. They are hardly a few meters away
Why Some People Give don’t want to give?
The reason why some people do not give is that they act out of a consciousness of scarcity, they believe that they do not have it in them to give, that they have nothing of value to share with the rest of the world and that they have to be a certain type of person to give or that there is not enough to go around. All of this is far from the truth, anyone and everyone have something they can offer one another. You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give When we trust God first, everything else will fall into place.
1. Want to advance at work? God is ultimately responsible for our promotion. We cannot count on others
(Psalm 75:6, 7).
2. By giving, we receive. Conversely, hanging on to money and being stingy will lead to lack and insufficiency (Proverbs 11:24, 25)
3. When we think we can divide God and our trust to Him in only some situations, we are deceived (Galatians 6:7, AMP).
1. When we just pretend to trust God, we are mocking Him.
2. When we do not trust Him, we will reap only what we sow and no more. If we sow evil, we will reap evil.
3. Whatever you do, do it with all your heart. Do it to serve God, not man (Colossians 3:23, 24).
4. When we serve Him, He will be the One to reward us above and beyond what the world could ever be capable of.
. 5. We will receive according to our generosity (Luke 6:38).
If we give with the right motive, whatever we give will be multiplied and returned to us in much greater proportions.
