WISDOM FOR GIVING (II)


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Proverbs 3:9-10


MEMORY VERSE:

Matthew 6:33 "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

Beloved, there are many lessons to learn from the biblical story on the offering of Cain and Abel that we read yesterday. God is not interested in leftovers. Abel, in giving, respected God's principles. Cain did not. Abel's offering prioritised God and it was love-based. Cain's offering did not offer the first and the best to God. It lacked genuine love. God always honours and rewards those who respect or obey His principles and put Him first in all their affairs.


In addition, Abel acted by faith. This made his offering to be more excellent than Cain's. Anything that is not of faith is sin. Abel's faith birthed complete, unquestioning and prompt obedience: he offered the right kind of sacrifice that God demanded from him. It takes a Spirit-led believer to live by faith and please God. Cain on the other hand was carnally-minded and self-led. Hence, he could not submit to God's word or fulfill His demand.


In 2021, let your offering, service, tithe, first fruits, worship and entire life prioritise God. Offer the utmost to the Highest. Give God the first and the best place as well as the first and best gifts in your life. Let all your sacrifices to Him be faith-based and love-based.


Spirit-led believers put God first in their finances. They do not borrow, 'eat' or divert their tithes and first fruits to mundane uses. They neither engage in debates on whether New Testament believers should pay tithe or not, nor argue about whether they are to pay gross or net. Spirit-led believers are never stingy towards God and are never broke or stranded. They know that the more they give, the more they get. They give cheerfully and enjoy the covenant in Luke 6:38. They are permanently connected to heaven's economy and God's inexhaustible treasure house. I encourage you to join the blessed category of these Spirit-led givers and 2021 will mark the end of lack in your life!


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

We must give more in order to get more.
