Living For Giving
By Tony Donaldson (Perth Australia)
We often measure our lives by our ability to make ends meet and as a consequence we work in our young years to provide for our retirement.
Yet the Lord has called us to be "Living for Giving" .
We are encouraged to "give and it shall be given unto you, pressed down, shaken together and running out all over" (Luke 6:38 ). It is also "better to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35 ). And in"seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, all these things shall be added unto us" (Matthew 6:33 ).
In fact we are challenged by the Word to prove God in our giving. "Test me in this," says the Lord Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. I will prevent the pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit," says the Lord Almighty. "Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land," says the Lord Almighty. (Malachi 3:8-12 ).
To be "Living For Giving" is a great challenge in my life and one that I am committed to excel in. I know this is the better way and that the Lord is calling you and me to put our whole trust in Him to be our provision.
