THE LAWS OF GIVING
SCRIPTURE: But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 2 Corinthians 9:6
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Giving is seeding; quality seeding equals quality reaping.
Law refers to a rule or body of rules of conduct inherent in human nature and essential to or binding upon by the society. It also means the generalization that describes recurring facts or events in nature.
Laws govern life. Rules determine rise in life. When you know the rules, you end as a ruler. People without laws end low in life.
There are rules governing sowing and reaping like every other aspect of life. Giving is seeding; quality seeding equals quality reaping. Every good farmer considers the quality of the seed as well as the soil on which to sow. This is because the quality of the seed and the soil affect the harvest. In the same way, the quality of your giving affects the quality of your reaping.
So, what are the laws that determine the effectiveness of giving?
1.Giving must be done in love: The love of God in the heart of a man is the greatest motivation for giving.
2.Give with a heart free of offence: Bitterness destroys the life of a seed.
3.Give willingly and excitedly.
Receive the grace to sow correctly and reap abundantly in Jesus’ Name.
Remember This: Giving is seeding; quality seeding equals quality reaping.
1.Determine to be a giver.
2.Practice the above-mentioned laws of giving.
