What does giving mean to you? This time of year its so easy to get greedy and want it all for ourselves. If we give only to make ourselves look good God will not like it. Remember Cain and Able Genesis 4:3-5
Deuteronomy 16:17 "Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord thy God which he hath given thee."
We are to give only what we have not spend money we dont have to buy gifts or something. We are to keep quiet about those things we do for or give people. Have you ever had someone to give you something only to announce it in front of everybody? Makes you want to give it right back.
Proverbs 28:27 "He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse."
Malachi 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
We are to help all we are able to. If we see someone in need and don't help them when we're able we will be cursed. Think about it when we give our reward is bigger than we can hold :) I love that!!
Giving to me is when you give someone something that makes there whole face light up. It means doing a kind gesture without anyone, not even who you do it for, knows about it. Giving to me is to not want for anything in return.
