MESSAGE: Open Heaven [Giving Is Personal] 8th December 2022

Many a time, when families go to worship God, the father distributes offerings to everyone so that they can have something to give. It is okay when you give to the little children who don’t have any money so that they can cultivate the habit of giving, but when the older ones and your spouse who have their own money are also collecting their offerings from you, you need to teach them better. In our Bible reading today, David refused to accept the offer of Araunah because what you give to God that is at no cost to you is accounted to the one who bore the cost, not you.

Giving is a personal matter. If your children collect pocket money, teach them to set aside some of it to give to God. If your spouse makes some money, encourage him or her to give to God from it. It is where the money is coming from that the blessing will go to. Ecclesiastes 1:7 says “All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from where the rivers come, thither they return again.”

Galatians 6:7 says “Be not deceived, God is not mocked; whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”. You cannot reap what I sowed; it is what you sowed that you would reap. Luke 6:38 says “Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down… shall men give unto your bosom”. It is he or she who gives that will receive.

Who do you think took home the twelve extra baskets from the story of the feeding of five thousand men by Jesus Christ in John 6:5-13? Since there were twelve baskets, each disciple could carry a basket to the house of the boy who gave his lunch. It is the fellow who sowed that will reap the harvest.

Giving is a personal matter particularly because of the day of trouble. Psalm 41:1-3 says if you are a giver, when you are sick, God will visit you. He will even make your bed at the time of sickness. In Psalm 20:1-3, the Bible makes it clear that God does not forget your offerings, particularly in the time of crisis. There are special blessings that are meant for givers and cannot be enjoyed by misers. It is he that waters that will be watered. When things are dry, the one who watered will in turn be watered in such period.

ACTION POINT:
Teach your family to give to God out of their own resources.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
2 Corinthians 8-12
