Recorded in Luke 6:38, Jesus said,"Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”
The principle of giving is truly very simply. If you give 1% to the Kingdom of ELOHIM, then you can fully expect a 1% eternal reward and return on your investment. The decision is personal. Each may give 1%, 10%, 50%, or 100%. Gratefully, YESHUA, our MESSIAH gave 100% during HIS ministry on earth. Each day HE gave 100% in walking in obedience to the will of HIS FATHER. HE completed HIS work and was returned to HIS place next to HIS FATHER.
Observation has taught me most people giving in the 1% range complain and whine more than anyone else. The more people give and actually participate (volunteer) in the advancement of the Kingdom of GOD on earth, the less they complain and the more they give thanks and praise to ELOHIM.I have also noticed the group of 10% and under givers is very large and the group of 90% and above givers is very small. To be more like YESHUA, to follow in HIS footsteps, is to give more and take less.Please take a moment to seek ELOHIM, and ask HIM, what is your portion to give today (time, resources, supplies, serving in your local church, volunteering at a homeless shelter, providing child care for single moms....there are countless ways to give).
