Giving is a biblical principal that if lived produces a fruitful life of blessing.
Giving must be done right...
- It must Honor God; (Proverbs 3:9&10) 9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: 10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.
- Dont forget that giving is not just tied to financial means... its everything. Ourselves, our time, our talents and our treasures.
- We must remember how much the Savior gave; (2 Corinthians 8:9)For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
- We must remember that God loves a cheerful giver; (2 Corinthians 9:7) Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity; for God loveth a cheerful giver.
