THE ACT OF GIVING

The act of giving can simply be said to be giving from the heart without expecting anything in return. The bible says God loves a cheerful giver.

Giving could be in two categories.

  • Giving to God
  • Giving to Man.

We can both give to God and man as well. However, our level of giving to God can be measured by the way we give to our fellow man.

Many people find it quite difficult to share what they have with others without seeking something in return. However, giving is necessary naturally in life. God requires that we be givers, this is because giving is a continuous process and you might not know the one that will yield the desired harvest. The bible says in Genesis 8: 22 ” For while the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.

God showed us an example by giving us His son Jesus Christ – His only begotten son.

In the book of John 3:16, for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

He gave us his best just because of His love for us. He also expects us to give him the best as a sign of our love and commitment to Him.  This was why he taught his disciples using the widow who gave her all as an example. Jesus emphasized that other rich men gave little out of the much they had but the widow woman gave her all. The lesson to be learned here is that the widow woman didn’t give her all because she had some more at home but her heart was willing to release her all to God. It wasn’t because of the amount but the condition of her heart. She gave her all cheerfully.  Jesus said, “He that gives sparingly shall reap sparingly but he that gives bountifully shall also reap bountifully”, for God loves a cheerful giver. God is interested in the positioning and conditioning of our hearts when we give. Don’t give God according to what you have or according to your capacity but according to his person and his capacity. Once your heart is willing to give him, he will make a way for you and provide all you require. Giving starts from the heart and mind; when there is a will, there is a way.
