“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” Luke 6:38
When I sit and think about the abundance of our God, I realize how giving He truly is. And because he is a generous God, we are also called to be generous. Now, we may find that many of His commands are relatively easy to obey. But oftentimes our wallets are the last to open. We must remember that throughout the Bible we are shown that by giving, we are able to receive more!
When giving, you can think of it as emptying yourself in order to be filled again by God.
Let me remind you though, that receiving more will not always be literal gifts. As the GIVER, our returned blessings come in many forms! As we follow our Lord in this way, we are not only obeying His command, but we are also exhibiting His heart.
Giving is one way to allow others to see JESUS through US!
We will never know just how generous God is until we give Him a chance to show us what else He is capable of. How will this be given unto us? BY GIVING!
“Give and it shall be given unto you…”
When I give, just the simple fact alone that I have something to give makes me immediately feel more blessed.
Our ministry is made possible by the Savior and the Giver. What we receive helps US to GIVE to those who have a heart for sharing the Gospel and teaching others how to do the same. Soul after soul is saved and it starts with simple gifts, and acts of obedience.
Are you excited for God’s provision this year?
Trust Him and His Word! He WILL bless!
