Day 6 – Giving

Part 2 – Giving by Faith

It takes faith to give – Malachi 3:8-11

  • God wants us to test him in our giving (v 10)
  • All we need is the faith
  • God is waiting to pour out blessings when we trust Him.
  • It is easy to say “I will give when God blesses me.”
  • God says, “Give and I will bless you.”

God’s Promises – Malachi 3:10-11, Mark 10:29-31, 2 Corinthians 9:10-11

  • We will not have enough room for God’s blessings
  • We can never out give God
  • God always gives back 100 times as much as us.
  • God will continue to give to us so we can in turn give to others and meet their needs
  • Our ultimate blessing is treasure in Heaven.

Depend on God – Philippians 4:14-19

  • Our giving is a sacrifice pleasing to God
  • When we give God will meet all of our needs.

Questions:

  1. Do I hold back on my contribution because I am worried about the future?
  2. Does my giving cause me to rely on God?
  3. What amount of money should I give weekly that is both responsible and still requires faith?
  4. When have I relied on the promise of God in my giving? What did God do in response?
