Wisdom of Marion Vol 1.18

“Give to others and God will give to you. Indeed, you will receive a full measure, a generous helping, poured into your hands—all that you can hold. The measure you use for others is the one that God will use for you.”

Luke 6:38 (Today’s EnglishVersion)

We need to excel in the spirit of giving.

Giving strengthens, stretches, matures, and tests our faith. Because our culture values money so highly, you can tell a lot about a person’s life in what they give.

You make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give.

5 Things the Power of Giving will do for you:

1) Giving will make you more like God (John 3:16)

2) Giving draws you closer to God (Luke 12:34)

3) Giving is an antidote to materialism (1 Timothy 6:17-19) {Money is a magnet that draws your heart}

4) Giving strengthens your faith (2 Corinthians 9:10-15)

5) God-giving blesses you in return (1 Kings 17:8-16)
