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

On our journey to purpose, w all have areas where we need to “do better” or “do right”. King James calls it “working righteousness”. Peter in Acts 10:34, said, “But in every ethnic group, he that fears God and does what is right…”
So as we grow in personally taking God at His word, but what about doing what is right?
Of course, there are many areas where we all must strive to do right, but in receiving from the Lord, especially with regard to breakthrough, increase, and financial prosperity, there are main areas we ought to do right.
You could sum them all up under financial stewardship. Breaking it down further, we all need to do right with regard to GIVING! This is a valuable lesson.
Personal giving is vital if we are to gain grounds like some of the people we so often envy. Quite a number of the well-known financially rich people are astute givers.
In giving we all must do better in paying our Tithes and Offerings, this is directly instrumental to kingdom advance here on Earth. You should give to kingdom causes, giving to our pastors and mentors, and finally but also of great importance, give to the poor or those with needs around us.
These stated areas are a huge opportunity to unlock blessings in our lives. Whether to charities, individuals, sponsoring a child through school, or feeding the poor and homeless…we all must do what is right as far as giving is concerned.
We must “build up the Church” by supporting mission work and expanding the network of Saints globally!
Do not let the economic recession, fear of financial insecurity, and pursuit of personal goals and desires make you stingy or greedy.
Prov 11:24 reads “One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.” Another translation puts it this way: “The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller.” (MSG)
The heavens are looking for who to trust with wealth but such must be one with a generous heart. And it all starts by being generous with the little you have.
Without a doubt, there is great victory through Christ, but in the end, it must be personally accessed by those who fear God, take Him at His word, and do what is right, especially in the area of giving.
God bless you!
LET US PRAY:
Dear Almighty Father, the God of abundance, I celebrate your generosity towards me and your whole creation.
Grant me the grace to live with such a big heart of generosity and abundance mentality. Remove from me every feeling of financial insecurity and fear.
I receive grace to give of my money, time, and resources generously and in righteousness.
I give generously, freely, and willingly and it will be given to me in good measure, pressed down and shaken together in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
