“OUR BELIEF DETERMINES WHERE WE WILL SPEND ETERNITY, AND OUR BEHAVIOR DETERMINES HOW WE WILL SPEND ETERNITY.” Robert Morris
2 Corinthians 9:6-7
But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful [hilarious] giver.
Ladder of Giving
The Ladder of Giving illustrates how we move from pain to the supernatural. Giving should always come from the heart. We do not reap any reward when our giving is PAINFUL. However, as we begin to understand that giving is an act of worship (His Worth) then we experience the joy and reward of honoring God. As we progress from REACTION (giving with thought our prayer) to REGULAR giving, which is giving the on a weekly basis to THE TITHE (10% of our Income), we see how God sustains us and blesses us. The dimension of giving is the OFFERING (anything above 10%) is a great step of faith. The next step is SUPERNATURAL giving. This is where God begins to do the unbelievable in your life. This is the goal of every believer!
John Wesley “I value all things only by the price they shall gain in eternity.”
David Livingstone “I place no value on anything I possess, except in relation to the kingdom of God.”
“ONCE YOU GIVE CHEERFULLY, GOD IS ABLE TO MAKE ALL GRACE ABOUND TOWARD YOU SO THAT YOU ALWAYS, ALWAYS HAVE ALL SUFFICIENCY IN ALL THINGS.” -Robert Morris
Proverbs 3:9 “Honor the Lord with your possessions, And with the first fruits of all your increase”
2 Corinthians 9:8-9
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 9 As it is written:
“He has dispersed abroad,
He has given to the poor;
His righteousness endures forever.”
Deuteronomy 8:11-14,17-18 “Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God…when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them; 13 and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and your gold are multiplied, and all that you have is multiplied; 14 when your heart is lifted up, and you forget the Lord your God…17then you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.’ 18 “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth…”
2 Corinthians 9:10-11
“Now may He who supplies seed
to the sower, and bread for food, supply
and multiply the seed you have SOWN and increase the fruits
of your righteousness, 11 while you are enriched in
everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.
It is my conviction that you can never truly know the blessed life without honoring God with your tithes and offerings (Malachi 3:8-12). I want to challenge with God’s challenge to put Him to the test (Malachi 3:10). It is a step of faith that you will not regret! Why not begin today and honor the Lord.
