The Rewards of Giving

“Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.”

(Luke 6:38 NLT)

Over the years, I’ve come to realize how true this principle is. Whenever I’ve been generous, regardless of my circumstances, I’ve always been blessed in return, so that I could keep on giving. This is what the apostle Paul told the Corinthian Christians, who were contributing to the fund to help the Christians in Jerusalem. He said, “And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8 NIV). I encourage you to be generous and watch God bless you in return.

Give and it will be given to you.
