Be a Generous & Cheerful Giver

"You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don't give reluctantly or in response to pressure. "For God loves a person who gives cheerfully." 2 Corinthians 9:7

"And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’" Acts 20:35

Are you a person who is always in need? Do you usually pray for something from God and ask others for something that you are in need of when they ask you how you are doing?  Many people in the U.S. are living pay check to pay check and many more are relying on government funds such as medicare to provide a free hospital bed and services during pregnancy, W.I.C. (woman, infants, children) to provide formula, baby foods, and milk, Food Stamps or Lone Star for monthly food allowance. But, the big problem with this is our government is bankrupt in deficit and yet we still ask for more, more and woman have babies knowing the only way they will be able to provide for them is through the above government "handicaps" programs. That's what it does handicaps people into believing that these things are good. But, I'd like us to reflect on what God's Word says and there are many, many more scriptural references to it's better to give than to take a loan and a loan makes you slave and servant to the giver. Relying on others for our desires, needs, and wants is not the way to go. We are to rely on the Lord God Almighty. He tells us that He will provide for all our needs, if we will put our trust in Him, if we are seeking His word daily, praying to Him from our heart daily, and expecting our prayers to be heard and answered then we will live in a way that the world doesn't understand or know.
As a Christian family personally, my husband has a ft. job that provides for all our needs. We give God's portion first in tithe and offering. Never test God on this. As His people it's clearly written in the Bible the first portion of all our earnings 10% goes to the store house of the believers or church. This is so important. God does bless our cheerful giving. Our attitude of giving is also very important. I am not doing all the biblical research for you on these because I want you to have a thirst for His living water and start research into what I'm saying and you will discover truth, wisdom, and a good counsel from His Word that will enrich your everyday life and I pray that each of you reading this will be a generous and cheerful giver. In Jesus' name. Amen.
 
Have a Blessed Day!
