(Giving Increases Your Grace To Receive)
TO THE BIBLE: Genesis 8:22
“While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.”
One profound principle in the Word of God that guarantees continuous increase is the principle of giving. Your giving is a channel to facilitate your receiving, for there can be no receiving without giving.
2 Corinthians 9:8 gives us divine insight into what your act of giving propels: “And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation]” (AMPC).
Another thing your giving does is that it helps to establish your righteousness: “Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness…” (2 Corinthians 9:10 KJV).
Your life as a Christian should depict your heavenly Father’s character, who gave His precious Son, Jesus, for our salvation: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
Make up your mind today to be a big giver like your Father, and activate the grace for receiving in your life.
2 Corinthians 8:9; 2 Corinthians 9:7
I invest wisely and rightly as I give for the propagation of the gospel and the expansion of God’s Kingdom. When I give, I receive, because God channels blessings to me from all over the world, Hallelujah!
