Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again- Luke 6:38
Our scriptural text is one of the most explicit revelations of God’s systems and His principles of increase. In God’s system, we see that giving is a precursor to receiving. This implies that receiving follows giving and not the other way round. Do you know what this suggests for us? This gloriously implies that we can program our receiving, by our giving! That’s something to shout about!
You are called to be a blessing to others and to the kingdom of God. When God blesses you in whatever capacity, He is waiting to see what you will do with the resources He has entrusted to you. God gives seed to the sower and also bread for food. So, we see that there is a portion which must go back to God as seed;- i.e tithes, offerings, the poor,etc and then a portion which is your bread; i.e yourself, your family, business, etc. The discipline to control your money and give unto God His portion, and unto men their portion, makes you a good steward before God.
Stewardship is an indispensable requirement for enjoying financial promotion in the kingdom. There is nothing you have that you did not receive (1 Corinthians 4:7) so why struggle to give?
You can never be wrong in giving but you can be wrong in keeping. It’s vital therefore to note that God always seeks faithful stewards to increase and to bless knowing that they would use the resources in a way He approves. Therefore to enjoy the overflowing blessings of God, position yourself today as a faithful steward. Yes you can!
