Giving is a God Thing
Prov. 3:9-10 "Honor the Lord from your wealth and from the first of all your produce."
When we think of the area of giving it can cause some reaction in us; like:- "it's mine", "I've worked hard for it", or "don't tell me what to do with what is mine". In other words we can tend to view it negatively. Whereas, with God He views it all from the positive, that giving produces something good. Even with His own giving "God gave His only begotten Son that we might receive everlasting life" John 3:16 God is the Great Giver, in fact every day and everything that is good is a gift from God in heaven. James 1:17 So when it comes down to us giving, He says that when we follow His example and give of what we have, a positive results.- v10 "our barns will be filled and our vats overflow with new wine". So enjoy giving, it's a 'God thing' with positive results.
Ever upward, ever onward,
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."
1 John 1:3
What we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ.
