Give And It Will Be Given

Those who are poor yet have big hearts will give to others despite having very little. In like measure, they will be blessed by God in return. It will be truly wonderful what God will do with those who have hearts to help the needy. Even when they are in a state of, need themselves. It is not about money to them, but it is the expression of goodness that flows from their heart. Good hearts produce goodness, but evil hearts produce what is rotten.

There were those recorded in the past who were rich in this world, yet their true wealth was not in their possessions but in what flowed from their hearts. For example, God trusted worthy men with riches, such as Abraham, Job, and King David. God allowed them to possess wealth because of the pureness of their heart and righteous integrity. Money did not affect them as it does most others. Instead, they were generous to the poor, reflecting God’s heart. Their greatest possession was that they had faith in Him and desired to please Him.

The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart, his mouth speaks. Luke 6:45 Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Proverbs 4:23

Jesus spoke highly of the poor woman who gave only two pennies into the temple treasuries. He said that it was everything she had to live on. Yet she gave it anyway because giving everything to the Lord was in her heart. This sacrifice of only two pennies was more significant in God’s eyes than the great wealth offered by all the rich combined.

Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.” Mark 12:43-44

God rewards the poor in spirit who give out of the goodness of their heart. He does not look at how much or little you have in the bank. But He sees the true intentions of the heart. So He will bless those who are givers in ways the rich and stingy will never know or experience.

God rewards the one who gives without expecting anything in return. He rewards the one who does good to his neighbor just because he wants to do good. You can’t imagine how much God looks with approval on the selfless giver. It pleases Him greatly to see a kind and generous heart.

Some people who are worthy will receive wealth in this world for their goodness, but most will get their portion in Heaven. It is a reward for loving one another, loving Jesus Christ, and providing for His children. When the security of worldly wealth lessens in the hearts of men, the gifts of the Spirit can then abound more and more.

“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.” Luke 6:38

God does not give everyone great wealth like Job, but He gives everyone what He knows they can handle. So use whatever He gives you to help one another. If you have very little, use that little bit to build up treasures in Heaven. If you have much, use it to help the poor of this world. It is not what you have in this world that determines your reward, but it is how you use what you have for good. It has everything to do with how you honor God with what He has given you.

For Jesus also said, “And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous wealth, so that when it fails, they may receive you into the eternal dwellings. “One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.

If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? And if you have not been faithful in that which is another’s, who will give you that which is your own? No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Luke 16:9-13
