This morning I want to talk about how God Blesses His Kids When They Seek and Follow His Will.
Are you familiar with this one?
"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it." Malachi 3:10
God gives us a challenge in this scripture and I am here to tell you that He is UP to that challenge and has blessed
my family again and again.
The Bible speaks quite a bit about giving and generosity.
There are lots of scriptures that talk about these topics.
"There is one who scatters, and yet increases all the more, And there is one who withholds what is justly due, and yet it results only in want." Proverbs 11:24
"He who is generous will be blessed, For he gives some of his food to the poor." Proverbs 22:9
"Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap." Galatians 6:7
"Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary." Galatians 6:9
"Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give,not reluctantly or under compulsion,for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
I guess it comes down to this these 3 things:
1. My parents taught me a very important lesson as a child.
2. And I was fortunate enough to marry a man who had parents who taught him this same lesson.
Just thought I'd share:)
