What are the blessings of giving?

“Whatever you spend,” the Lord says, “I will repay!”

Do you remember who else said that? – The Good Samaritan! It’s from the parable that the Lord told about the poor man that was beaten and robbed along the road by thieves, and the Good Samaritan picked him up and took him to the inn and told the innkeeper, “Whatever you spend, I will repay.” (Luke 10:30‑37)

The Good Samaritan is really the Lord and the innkeeper is His steward, like you or me! Whatever we spend to help in His Work of rescuing lives and saving souls, He will more than repay! In fact, He has promised that if we obey Him and open the windows of our lives upon others, He “will open the windows of Heaven, and pour out such a blessing, there will not be room enough to hold it!” (Malachi 3:10)

That’s the way God is: As you pour out, He will pour in, and He will never let you outgive Him! He always gives you much, much more than you ever give! As long as you will continue to overflow on others, God will continue to overflow His blessings upon you! And the more you give, the more He will give you back in every way!

Why don’t you try it and see what a blessing you can be and how much God will bless you for it!

 

The Christian who tithes will be surprised:
  1. At the amount of money he has for the Lord’s work.
  2. At the deepening of his spiritual life.
  3. At the ease in meeting his own obligations with the nine-tenths.
  4. At the ease in going from one-tenth to a larger percentage.
  5. At the preparation this gives to be a faithful and wise steward over the nine-tenths remaining.
  6. At himself for not adopting the plan sooner!
Thoughts on finances
  • When we give to God we are taking the gift out of one of His hands and putting it into the other.
  • By practicing the grace of sharing, a person is storing up treasures for himself. Gifts are investments.
  • So long as we live we must give. And that is one of the joys of living. Perhaps some of us have wished that the time might come when we need not “give” any more. Then we need to read this true little message in verse:

“For giving is living.” the angel’s voice said,

“Go feed the hungry, share with them your bread.”

“But should I give out till I’m at an end?”

I questioned the angel. “I’d have nothing then!”

“Oh no!” said the angel, “Hark. Here’s what to do:

“Just give till the Master stops giving to you!”

  • There are two ways in which a Christian may view his money. “How much of my money shall I use for God?” Or, “How much of God’s money shall I use for myself?”
  • If you don’t give away something God wants you to give, you don’t own it–it owns you.
