TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I Am not a selfish God. My very nature is to give to those I love. Demonstrate My giving side by being generous. When I see you giving, I can open up the floodgates of heaven over your life.
A WHOLE LOTTA JESUS
We like to call Christmas “the season of giving.” While I like that, there’s a great principle of giving in the Bible you and I are going to discuss today that should apply to every day.
Brother Luke wrote in his epic book (like how I did that? Epic?) that God is the greatest giver ever. However, He gets really revved up when we demonstrate His giving nature.
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” – Luke 6:38
The Father goes, “Good googly moogly! Do you see my kids out giving of their time, talent, and treasure? I need to give them more so they can give away even more!”
In God’s economy, the amount you give will determine the amount you get back. This is not just a financial principle. It’s a Kingdom principle, so it works with time, talent, connections, relationships – all kinds of stuff.
Here’s the best part: if you’re giving away Jesus to the lost and hurting, you get as much Jesus as you want. Why is that important? You don’t want to go to the sea of the Kingdom and just bring a teaspoon. You should want to dive in deep. Amen. I want to drink deep to live an epic life here on earth and you should too.
The Bible says if you put a whole lot into it, you’re going to get a whole lot out of it. So give! Give of your time to serve. Give of your talent to build others up. Give your money to help those who don’t know the goodness of God. You’ll get a whole lot of Jesus in return.
