On Giving - audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Believers should give according to their income. 'On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.' (1 Corinthians 16:2, NIV)
Note that the offering was set aside on the first day of the week. [Sunday] When we are willing to offer the first portion of our wealth back to God, then God knows he has our hearts.H e knows—and we also know—that we are submitted completely in trust and obedience to our Lord and Savior.
We are blessed when we give.... 'remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' (Acts 20:35, NIV)
God wants us to give because he knows how blessed we will be as we give generously to him and to others. Giving is a 'kingdom of God' principle—it brings more blessing to the giver than to the recipient. One of those blessings - we know that we are pleasing Our Heavenly Father!!
When we give freely to God, we receive freely from God. 'Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.' (Luke 6:38, NIV)
'One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.' (Proverbs 11:24, NIV)
God promises that we will be blessed over and above what we give and also according to the measure that we use to give. But, if we hold back from giving with a stingy heart, we hinder God from blessing our lives.
Believers should seek God and not a legalistic rule about how much to give. 'Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.' (2 Corinthians 9:7, NIV)
Please return this afternoon, as we continue this 'series' on 'giving', there will be an afternoon post. Continue to be in His presence, as you study the 'Word', learning His will, with the intention of - obeying. Amen. Amen.
