Which is harder to give away: your heart, time or money?
“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
Which is harder to give away: your heart, your time, or your money?
“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven. Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full-pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” Luke 6:37-38 NLT
Scripture says to love the Lord thy God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength. God knows where your treasure is there your heart will also be. Many times it is easier to give your time and money more than your heart. For it is with the heart that we are justified and made right with God. God wants our heart to be humble and broken of pride.
We can give money and time without our heart being surrendered and circumcised by the blood of Jesus. When we give God our heart, HE gets our praise and worship, which results in the giving of our time and money.
God’s great paradox is that what you give away returns to you in greater measure. Likewise when you give extravagantly out of the generosity from your heart, generosity is returned to you in greater measure. When you forgive others you will be forgiven.
Jesus said, “In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:33
Abraham gave his son Isaac on the altar in obedience and trust to God. Job lost his wealth, children, business and reputation yet praised God. Daniel was thrown into the Lion’s Den for praying to God rather than worshipping the King.
Jesus called the crowd together with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. Mark 8:34 AMP
God wants us to deny ourselves and become LOVE which is HIS image and likeness. To love not our own life unto death.
