Deuteronomy 8 tells us that God gives us the power to build wealth. When it comes to giving, God isn’t concerned with our material wealth or how many “things” we acquire throughout our lifetime. Every day, we have the opportunity to participate in God’s work in the world through our giving. We are co-laborers with God, which means God has a part to play and we have a part to play. The process of giving blesses us and brings Glory to God. Our value doesn’t reside in our wallets, but in our ability to practice generosity in a multitude of ways. When we obey God and give, there are many benefits that we reap. In today’s blog, I will share with you a few secret benefits of giving.
Giving Makes an Impact
There are endless ways to give, whether that be through a one-time donation to a charity or performing a small act of kindness. Sometimes we take the fundamental basics of life for granted, like home-cooked meals and a warm place to sleep. For many, these basic necessities are considered unattainable luxuries. Being a charitable person doesn’t always mean giving by monetary means, it can be just as powerful to donate your time and energy. I advise you to find an issue that you feel strongly about and find a way you can help. No matter the scale of your contributions, they are impactful and make a difference. Even if it’s just a small one!
The work that happens through Wealthbuilders is a great example of giving that makes an impact. At WealthBuilders, anyone who wants to help further our mission can partner with us. Partners are those who empower us to go overseas and provide business training. They grant us the start-up capital needed to build Christ-centered enterprises all over the globe. Monthly partners are the ones who enable us to provide needed infrastructure (water wells, fire bricks, hygiene training), produce education materials, send us to our sites, and sponsor conferences worldwide. With the help of our partners, we have the freedom to participate in God’s work throughout the world. We are so blessed by their giving!
Giving Results in Receiving
Luke 6:38 says, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” God promises us a “good measure” if we are willing to step out of our comfort zone for others. I want you to take a minute and think long and hard about your ability to give. God has given each of us the resources and the ability to help our neighbors, especially those in need. Not only that, God takes full notice of when we give and we receive a full return from Him in the form of His blessings.
By no means am I saying that if you give ten dollars, you will receive ten dollars. The point I’m trying to make is that when you become a giver, you put yourself in the position to become a receiver. Giving grows us and blesses us in unexpected ways. Don’t wait for an opportunity to give to fall into your lap, make it a priority in your life and you will begin to feel the prosperity!
Giving Advance God’s Kingdom
In my last blog, I touched on the importance of tithing. The tithe refers to 10 percent of your income that you generously give as a token of honor and appreciation. As Leviticus 27:30 says, “A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the Lord; it is holy to the Lord.” When you sow 10 percent of your income back into your church, it not only generates the good within your heart, but it also advances the kingdom of God. In other words, when we fund the mission of Christ’s Church, we are investing in God’s people, communities, and nations. Tithing teaches us how to be strong stewards of what God has granted us.
