In Your Bible Read This Out Loud: 2 Corinthians 9:6-10  

Memorise This Verse: Luke 6:38 'Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap'  

Afterwards Talk About This: Why does the bible speak more about giving than receiving?  

Something To Do Before Next Time: Memorise 3 of the below scriptures.  

Written Diploma Work: Write out all the blessings that are listed in Psalm 112 and what it says you must do to activate them.  

Meditate Word By Word On This Verse: Psalm 112:5 

 

The scriptures speak a great deal about money and the scriptures constantly draw the parallel between financial giving and sowing seed. When we give financially to the work of God it is likened to sowing a seed in the ground and when we receive back financially from God it is likened to reaping a harvest.

Listed below are several scriptures that are based on money and a predominant theme that runs through all of them is that for every time they mention financial giving - they mention receiving finances and blessings many more times. 

Giving financially is our responsibility, sending financial blessings is God's responsibility and when the scriptures below speak much more about receiving than giving it shows that God takes his responsibility to bless us very seriously.  

LUKE 6:38 :- GIVE * It will be given to you * A good measure * Pressed down * Shaken together * And running over * Will be poured into your lap  

2 Corinthians 9:6-8:- WHOEVER SOWS GENEROUSLY WILL ALSO REAP GENEROUSLY *God is able to make all grace abound to you *So that in all things *At all times *Having all that you need * You will abound in every good work  

2 Corinthians 9:9 :- HE HAS SCATTERED ABROAD HIS GIFTS TO THE POOR *Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food *Will also supply and increase your store of seed * And will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness * You will be made rich in every way * So that you can be generous on every occasion  

MALACHI 3:10 :- BRING THE WHOLE TITHE INTO THE STORE HOUSE *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 pests from devouring your crops * And the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit  

PSALM 112:5 :- GOOD WILL COME TO HIM WHO IS GENEROUS AND LENDS FREELY * Surely he will never be shaken * A righteous man will be remembered for ever * He will have no fear of bad news * His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord * His heart is secure * He will have no fear * In the end he will look in triumph on his foes * He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor * His righteousness endures forever * His horn will be lifted high in honour  

So in the above scriptures, for each time giving is mentioned, there are many more references to receiving which very much keeps in with the biblical illustration of sowing and reaping as it applies to our finances.

Since there are many more references to receiving than giving in the above scriptures does it not show the heart beat of God of honouring us as we have honoured him? Why not look again at the above scriptures look at the references to giving and the many more references to receiving, doesn't this develop an assurance in the goodness of God?
