MONEY AS A MESSENGER 2
MAIN TEXT – Malachi 3:10 -Bring all the tithes into my house…if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour out the blessing
Matthew 6:4 – Your charity deed may be in secret and your Father who sees in spirit will reward you openly.
Giving for God’s work includes almsgiving to the needy – Proverbs 22:9 and we are advised by Jesus Christ to do it humbly and quietly and in secret, the Word of God tells us that we should give without announcing it by taking glory in our giving because our God who sees in secret will reward us openly. Giving generously is a form of thanksgiving to God and we should give to the house of God for the upkeep of the Ministers of God. Thus we are commanded to give generously to our local church.
The important thing is not how much money we have acquired but whether we wisely use what God has provided for us. We are custodians of what God has given to us and we are to give account of our stewardship. When we give to the work of the Kingdom and to the needy, we are expressing God’s purpose of providence. Everything we have, are from God. Let us give according to the measure that we have and we should not wait until it begins to overflow.
