The Blessedness of Giving


Today’s Daily Rhapsody placed the focus on Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s words about giving. Giving back to the community and tithing to the church are all forms of doing the Word of God. This should come as no surprise, as the man of God is a known philanthropist that places the needs of others above his regardless of the circumstance. We should all aspire to do as Pastor Chris does and follow Christ’s word in giving.

“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” (Genesis 8:22)

So long as this earth is in existence the nature God creates will remain. Every season of the year brings its special components. There is a time for planting and a time for harvesting. We will forever live in a world of polarity; cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.

The importance of giving

“I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35)

One of the most central values in Christianity is in the concept of giving. Through giving, the Word of God ensures constant and continues economic prosperity. Many people overlook and disregard the importance of giving. Additionally, they are not as eager to give as they are to receive. Yet the promised blessing is to giver and not to receiver. And thus, as Jesus said: “It is more blessed to give than to receive”.

The blessedness of the giver

“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8)

God can grace you with every blessing and favor in richness. This is not just about money. Giving or receiving. The Word of Jesus was about the entire concept of giving. Saw the seed of anything good you want from life in other, it will then grow and multiply in your own life. Remember:

“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets” (Matthew 7:12)

God bless!
