The Gift of Caring

The Gift of Caring

There was More than Enough
We make a living by what we make
But we make a life by what we give.

                        Winston Churchill

Today we continue the journey of “The Greatest Giving”.

Last week this journey had a beautiful beginning. After Thanksgiving come “Forgiving”. That leads us to “Giving”.

When the Children of God give the needs of the world are met. When Believers give “Prosperity” comes over a nation.

If God so loved the world…our giving should provide the care.

Nehemiah 4:6 …for the people had a mind to work…

Nehemiah 2:17-18 …so we will no longer be a disgrace…

The Truth is Believers have decided tithing and giving is about money and pressure. Giving has become a debate. It has also become an option more than a reality. The truth is Tithing and Giving are the result of a changed life. It is about giving what we have received from God. Freely you have received, freely give.” Matt. 10 Verse 8 contains a basic biblical principle for a blessed life and even more a blessed world. Whatever God has given us will be used for His glory when we freely give it back to Him for others. Giving removes many obstacles. Giving opposes and frustrates the plans of the enemy. Tithe and Offerings are not about God needing money it is about needing to be first place in our lives.

Can we think for a moment, when believers tithe and give offerings;

  • Missionaries are sent to those who do not know Christ.
  • Needs are met for those who have lost hope.
  • Houses of worship have supply for ministry to continue.
  • The Storehouse has resource to maintain a sufficient House of Worship.

God – Says give and it shall be given

Satan – Give and you won’t have enough

God – Says My plan is for you

Satan – Says God is against you

God – Says I want more for you

Satan – Says tithing is a religious hindrance

God – Says when you give the miraculous is a reality

Satan – Says the more you give the more you’ll suffer

God is the Father of Life. Satan is a liar and the deceiver. The Question is who is believable.

Ex. 36:5-7  They said to Moses, “The people are bringing much more than enough for the work the Lord told us to do.”  So Moses made it be known to all the people, saying, “No man or woman is to give any more gifts for the holy place.” So the people were kept from bringing any more. For the things they had were enough for doing all the work. There was more than enough…
