DAY 24 TUESDAY: NOVEMBER 2020

YOUR GIVING DETERMINES THE LEVEL OF HARVEST!

But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred (Mark 4:8).

God expects every Christian to be a good giver because the level of his giving determines the level of his harvest in life. When you learn to give bountifully, you also harvest bountifully in life. In the opening text, the Bible says that other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that his giving determines the level of harvest in life. Take note of the fact that a Christian’s giving determines his level of harvest he receives in life. Hence, a life that gives generously is a life that is indeed blessed by God in life forever.

Jesus Christ made it clear to us vividly when He said in Luke 6:38 thus, “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.” Therefore, a giver can never lack in life because the same measure he gave out will be the same measure he will also receive from God in life. When a Christian learns to give using the right measure, he will definitely reap a great harvest in life. Giving is a mystery and a principle that operates in God’s kingdom in life.  A hand that learns to give always is of course a hand that is often blessed by God and constantly at the top of life forever.

As a Christian, God expects you to be a cheerful giver in life. A cheerful giver is expected to give willingly devoid of grudges and coercion in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 9:7, “So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.” In fact, a Christian is expected to give generously with a cheerful heart that is devoid of pretense in life. When a Christian gives cheerfully with the right measure, his level of harvest is bound to be great indeed in life. A Christian who is a cheerful giver can never lack in life because he is connected to a divine source of life from above forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to be a cheerful giver because his giving determines the level of his harvest and also connected to a divine source of life from above forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: But this I say: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully (2 Corinthians 9:6).
