The Joy of Giving

January 27, 2010 — Leave a comment

“ . . .remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”                  Acts 20:35 (ESV)

Our giving should be spiritual – Romans 12:1-2.  Our giving should be systematic – 1 Corinthians 16:1-2.  Our giving should be sacrificial – Luke 21:1-4.  Our giving should be spontaneous – 2 Corinthians 9:6-8.

When I give money, I’m giving a piece of my life.  My time and talent were exchanged for treasure – money.  It’s a piece of my life when I give it.  It’s spiritual.  I give as I get paid, so it’s systematic.  I can’t all the time, but once in a while, the Lord will call me to give something out of the ordinary – sacrificially.  And, when the grace of giving is on my life, spontaneous needs can be met and bring amazing joy to the giver!  It is more blessed to give than to receive!
