February 15 – A Heart For Giving

“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” Matthew 7:12

As we “do unto others,” God will “do unto us.” It is God’s law of exchange. Give what you have and the Lord will give you MORE…more love, more encouragement, more faith, and, yes, more finances.

God is interested in every aspect of YOUR life, but He moves on YOUR behalf when you move on His agenda and operate under His law. Learn to give because it is another form of worship to God, not just because there is a need somewhere.

Proverbs 11:25 states: “The liberal [generous] soul shall be made fat [prosperous]: and he that watereth [gives] shall be watered [given] also himself.”

Jesus had much to say about stewardship. In the parable of the unjust steward, the inference is that those who are not faithful with the handling of their money cannot be trusted with spiritual gifts, either. (See Luke 16: 1-12.)

Develop a reputation for GIVING…whether it is bread for the poor, a home for the homeless, prayer for the sick, or simply love and compassion for the hurting. It is the heart of God!

PRAY: “Giver of all gifts, thank You for the gift of money to supply my temporal needs and to share with others. I worship You with tithes and offerings. Help me to gain a deeper meaning of giving. In Jesus’ Name, amen.”
