How Can You Give to The Lord?
When a person asks himself: have I ever given to the Lord? It is a question that many people will answer by saying that they either paid tithe or have given some money to their local church. When a person asks: how can I give to the Lord according to His will? That person has begun to understand what giving is. If he is obedient to the Lord, he will learn how to give to the Lord and give in other areas of his life. When you have given in obedience to the Lord, you will be rewarded. When you are in the Lord’s will, you are already giving to the Lord. How? For instance, as I write, I am giving out knowledge that the Lord has given to me. It is a giving person that will eventually find God. A person who does not give is dead. A dead person is not able to continue living among the living, he has not been obedient to the Lord. If a person decides to become dead, he has a curse of deafness and dumbness as a result of his disobedience to the Lord. When I give, I do not expect to get back what I have given, I expect to get more than what I gave. If you have been giving and not receiving, then you are not giving in the Lord’s will.
Is Your Giving in Your Church in Accordance to God's Will?
I was once giving in a church that could not give what I was giving. I was an all-rounder in the church. I participated in most of the activities of the church and was giving my tithe as often as I could. When I left the church, it became indebted to me. I had given in accordance to God’s will and the church had received everything that I had given. How is a person supposed to give in a church? If you are giving in God's will, that church will become indebted if you are not receiving from the Lord. It is the responsibility of the leadership of that church to ensure that they thank God for your giving so that you can, in turn, receive from God. What happens when the leadership of the church does not thank God for your giving? If the leadership of the church does not thank God for your giving, they are cursed to become deaf and dumb in God’s presence.
