FIVE STEPS TO ABUNDANT LIFE-STEP 5.
Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the first-fruits of all your increase, so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine. Proverbs 3:9,10
To give of the first of all your God-given possessions honors Him and He will bless you and multiply back to you as you obey Him. Whether you believe that the tithe is valid today or the giving of offerings, it is a matter of the heart and not a law. New Testament giving seemed to be much more than just 10% because in many cases they gave all to help their brothers and sisters. In the first church they sold their possessions to share with new converts coming into the fellowship. No matter what you believe about giving, it is promised if you give you will be blessed abundantly by God!
"Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you." Luke 6:38
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
