Give even when you can’t afford to give.
“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
Something that has always fascinated me is how opposite God’s Kingdom is from our world. If you want to be forgiven, you need to forgive. If you want to be first, you need to be last. And the same goes with giving. When you have a need, that is when you give.—
I personally have experienced this. Last year, I was really struggling to make ends meet. Financially, I just didn’t have much in my pocket. But I did have some. God told me to give a portion of what I had and to monthly support someone else in need. It wasn’t much, and it felt a bit embarassing because it was so little, but I listened even though it was a sacrifice. Do you know every month God provided extra for me? It didn’t make sense, but I always had what I needed. The opposite also happened to me a couple years ago. I had stopped a donation to this organization because I thought I couldn’t afford it, even though God had told me to donate to them. After I did that, I went through such a dry season with my finances. I started donating again, and suddenly random checks came in the mail!
All this to say, the kingdom of God is like algebra. If you follow the formula, it always stays true. Give = it will be given to you. When you have your greatest need, fairhfully pay your tithes, don’t covet your resources (because they are God’s anyway) and learn to be a cheerful giver and princesses, just you watch and see what God will do.
