DAY 9 FRIDAY: APRIL 2021

MAKING YOUR LIFE MEANINGFUL BY GIVING!

Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need (Ephesians 4:28).

Every Christian is expected to make his life meaningful by giving. God wants you to be a great asset to your world and generation in life. You are not a liability but a blessing to mankind in life. The Bible says in the opening text that let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to make his life meaningful by giving. God expects you as a Christian to be a great asset to your generation by being industrious and diligent in whatever you do in life. Do not be idle but be diligent in your assignment in life forever.

The Bible says that you are the seed of Abraham through Christ Jesus in life. As the seed of Abraham, you are the heir apparent to the blessings of Abraham in life. Part of God’s blessings to Abraham is stated in Genesis 12:2 thus, “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.” Therefore, it is absolutely God’s will for a Christian to make his life meaningful through giving always in life. God has made you a blessing to your generation; therefore, make your life meaningful by giving. A giver will always remain a blessing and a great asset to his generation, and of course he can never lack in God’s kingdom in life forever.

One of the best ways you can make your life meaningful is by giving because giver never lacks in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Luke 6:38, “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.” In fact, whatever one gives to the poor and needy is hundred percent rewarded by God and returned back to him in life. Whenever a Christian gives especially to the poor, he is of course lending to the Lord and definitely God will surely reward him handsomely in life. Every Christian should take note of the fact that he is a blessing and a great asset to his generation in life forever.

Daily Tip: You are not a liability but a blessing and a great asset to your world and generation in Christ Jesus in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8).
