THE BLESSING OF GIVING
"Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over will be in your lap. for with the measure you use, you will be back to measure"(Matthew 6:38)
There are several passages that can be found in the Bible about the blessings of giving, and that giving means provide, give, provide, transmit and transfer something. In the above passage the Lord challenges us to give and assures us great rewards. When we decided to give, it implies to give above and beyond the material; In addition, it involves cultivating a joyful attitude to the time to do so.
The Bible makes reference to the timely intervention of some women in the Ministry of Jesus; that were moved by a sincere gratitude for having received a benefit, he pledged to give their personal property; as well as their time and talents, because travelling together with Jesus and the disciples to the places where you were preaching the Gospel.
Not fit doubt that they were happy to have known to be more wonderful, Jesus, who had provided them an opportunity to start a new life, giving them the gift of salvation. Jesus had shown them valuable and talented that were, by allowing them to follow him to different places where he traveled to preach.
They practiced the generosity, and not closed his hands and less heart to give the best of themselves; and went on to the story, as women of value, receiving "measurement good, abundant... measurement countless love... loyalty, provision..." from God. Christ is our model to imitate, is the ultimate expression of generosity, delivery, resignation, love, etc. It is therefore to be impacted by his love, one immediate response becoming kindhearted, generous and collaborators. We ask God to allow us to give with joy with joy, that will allow us to provide excellent, the best.
Lord, thank you for this new dawn that we may live, have your holy spirit to dwell in our lives, giving us a home, a family, a job and a few children. We thank you for all received, the good and even bad. We know that you are right and good. We fully trust in you, we will give you the control of our lives in faith. Thank you because you have also healed and delivered our being. Now we are in your hands and we also have to give you the best of our lives. Gives us a heart that is generous with our neighbor, because while we depend on your provision, shall we not want. Help us Father God to grow in wealth and likewise to harvest in abundance, to give according to what we have decided in our hearts and give with joy because God loves that gives with joy, to supply seed that planting because I know to also supplemented us bread so that we may eat, give you the best, the excellent and our works are not our leftovers", because with the measure by which we measure ourselves again to measure." Amen
