Love equals Giving.

The art of giving begins with Love and obedience to the word of God. Without love, giving cannot exist. 1 Corinthians 13:13 “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” If God did not love mankind, He wouldn’t have sent His only son to die for us. If we look within ourselves, we see that giving comes easy to us when we are giving to those we love, meanwhile those we don’t love we find it hard to give. If we want to be like God, we are required to love everyone, so that we will find it easy to give without resentment and drawbacks. 1 Peter 4:8 “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” 

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38). Every time we give, we are transformed because we grow more in Love. Love is giving and sacrifice of service just like Jesus did for us. We can give our money, time, service, emotions, and materials that can bring bountiful harvest. If you love God, you will love others, and if you love others, you will give more for the promotion of the Kingdom of God. Giving without reservation attracts the blessings of God in our lives. Let us take example from our father God whom according to John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” 

Be an example of who God wants you to be in Him through the art of Love in giving. But be careful not to become prideful or arrogant; the bible says in Matthew 6:2 that “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.”
