Honor the Lord with your possessions and with the first fruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new vine. Proverbs 3:9-10.
One of the many divine characteristics of our GOD, is the nature of GIVING, and giving abundantly. HE gives us peace, strength, Joy, prospeirity, and above all HE has given us Salvation, by giving up HIS own life on the cross. The Bible tells us, in Ephesians 5:1 “Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.” hence, just as our father is a good giver, we as HIS children, must be cheerful and willing givers.
When we prioritise the practice of giving, we will conquer greed, learn to manage our resources in a godly manner, and also open up doors for special blessings in our life. No one has ever gone poor, because of giving, we see that the widow who gave Elijah in her poverty, was blessed abundantly in her life by GOD. GOD is watching us, we might not see HIM physically, but just like air is felt and not seen, HE Is felt in our life, through giving. We are called to be a blessing, and one becomes a blessing by giving to GOD and HIS people.
Giving does not necessarily mean, giving money alone, but it also means giving our time, our talent and our strength to invest in GOD’s kingdom. When we bless HIS kingdom, HE Will add all good things into our life. A good giver, will lack no resources, GOD himself will satisfy HIM with goodness and prospeirity.
