Give And It Will Be Given To You
Every good work and each generous gesture, whether material or spiritual, will reap a great reward when carried out by the enabling power of the Holy Spirit with a good and generous attitude.
Sadly today, there are an increasing number of false teachers who abuse this passage in order to feather their own nest, by manipulating the minds of their congregations - suggesting that if they drop money into the preacher's offering box, God is obliged to increase their own financial situation. This type of 'prosperity teaching' and their accompanying 'positive declarations' is a distortion of the truth.
Others insist that a tithe is a Biblical command for church members, which will result in scarcity when disobeyed. This again twists God's Word in another direction.
"Give and it will be given to you," is a promise from Jesus which holds true today, and the giving of a tithe is a freewill choice for all believers. Let us never forget the God knows the heart. He knows when gifts, whether material or spiritual, are given reluctantly or joyfully. May we be those who gives generously to others and to the Lord, in grateful thanks for the wonderful gift of His only begotten Son.
But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
Our United Prayer:
Heavenly Father, create in us a clean heart, we pray, and develop in us a generous spirit. We pray that we may become cheerful, generous, and gracious givers, in every area of our lives. Help us to apply the principle of sowing and reaping abundantly so that others may be blessed and Your name may be glorified. This we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
We are a growing group of people praying daily for and with others. We were led to start an online ministry to deliver what is needed more now than ever, a place where you can go to easily to submit a prayer request or requests involving others to pray for your needs. The Power of Prayer. Matthew 18:20- For where two or more come together in my name, there I am among them. You are never alone in prayer. The Power Of Numbers Praying.
We ask you to pray for this ministry, for its success in helping others in need of prayer.
2 Corinthians 2:17
"Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God."
