Giving & Getting
Posted: June 11, 2016
God is a giver. He's the greatest giver of all. His wealth is limitless. His grace is boundless. He is rich in mercy. Not only did he give us the breath in our lungs, but he also gave us Jesus. Our salvation is in Him. And just when you think that's enough gifts from our gracious God, he blesses us financially. Why? Because he can, because he wants to, and because his Word says so.
"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
We are to give our first and our best, and when we do so, we will be overwhelmed with the blessings that follow. When we give, God gives more. And when we give more, God gives even more than that. We can't out-give God! There is no end to his resources! So when you give, know that your return will be even greater than your investment, because that's how awesome and generous and gracious our God is.
Lord, thank you for all that you have given me. The list could go on and on. Help me to not withhold anything from you and to give freely and cheerfully in obedience to you. In Jesus' name, amen.
