8 Lessons About How God Wants Us To Give

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayGIVE_zpsptecnomx.jpg
8 Lessons About How God Wants Us To Give

  Today we will try to answer the question "What does God want me to give?" 
 
by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayGIVE1_zpsi9iqinvt.jpg
This is the most important of all of our giving.  Read the verse below - "worship Him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water."  "Glory" means exaltation, honor, praise - it means never taking the credit for something that we didn't do ourselves.  We have life through Jesus Christ: God's only Son who died on the cross for our sins.  We did nothing to receive that salvation and therefore we cannot take the credit for it - God deserves all of the glory, honor and praise.
"He said in a loud voice, 'Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come.  Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.' "  Revelation 14:7

 

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayGIVE2_zpskx2zmhnh.jpg
In monetary form, attitude & actions.  The verse below is amazing to me because it covers everything and it is so relevant to today's attitude of living above our means.  It's simple: pay your bills, pay your taxes, be respectful - even pay through your actions.  For example:  Let's say a neighbor was there for you when your spouse was in the hospital 5 years ago - they mowed your lawn and made some meals for you.  Maybe recently you heard that this neighbor is in a similar situation - pay their kindness back with kindness by helping them out in the same way.

"Give everyone what you owe him:  If you owe taxes, pay taxes;  if revenue, then revenue;  if respect, then respect;  if honor, then honor."  Romans 13:7
 


by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayGIVE3_zpstjtgjqrh.jpg
This is where we pray and allow God to guide us in our giving.  Who does God want us to help by giving?  When does He want us to help them? etc.  See the verse at the top of this post - not only should we search our heart before giving but then we need to have the right attitude when giving and not "give because we have to."

 

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayGIVE4_zpscedtua11.jpg
Of course I am not suggesting that you give away your life savings but don't be stingy. Giving is a personal action that needs some serious prayer before hand.  Don't take the act of giving lightly and don't take it to extremes either way (too much or too little).

"All day long he craves for more, but the righteous give without sparing."  Proverbs 21:26

 
by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayGIVE5_zpshpm6whe9.jpg
When I was studying God's Word I was looking to see how many verses were about "giving" and I was surprised to find such an emphasis on the poor.  See verse below - Giving to the poor will benefit us as well as the person in need!  Below we learn that those who "give to the poor will lack nothing". 
 

"He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses."  Proverbs 28:27
 


by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayGIVE6_zpsk8zv3qrf.jpg
See the verse below - Jesus himself said that giving is more important than receiving - giving is a blessing.
"In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' "  Acts 20:35
 


by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayGIVE7_zpskflww61v.jpg
We will all have to give an account of our actions.  Hold yourself accountable for your actions, words and thoughts and present these to God through prayer.
 
"So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God."  Romans 14:12
  
by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo SundayGIVE8_zpskmmcouuc.jpg
 We studied this topic in more detail a few years ago - click HERE to read:
"Obeying God With Your Body"
 
"Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God - which is your spiritual worship"  Romans 12:1
 


 
 Are you giving what God wants you to give?

HARVEST - Thankful for Pears (with RECIPES)

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo 2017-09-24_zpsachlhgzy.jpg
HARVEST - Thankful for Pears (with RECIPES)

The pear is one of my favorite type of fruit - it is probably tied with the blackberry.
Usually the squirrels just devour our pears before they are ripe (actually they shred and discard the flesh just to eat the seeds). 
Anyway, please enjoy some of my pear creations previously posted on my blog:
