Giving To Gain

Key Verse

“There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty” (Proverbs 11: 24).

Text — Proverbs 11: 23-27


Oswald J. Smith said, “The only way to have more than enough to spare is to give God more than you can spare.” It is wonderful to give because by it you gain in various ways.  Give to God or men and the gain is sure to come. Giving to gain is a sublime and divine law; it is the law of enterprise and business growth and above all, it is the law of faith. In love, God gave his only Son, Jesus Christ for the redemption of lost humanity and now He has many sons and daughters. What is withheld can never increase, multiply or grow.

Beloved, God requires that we sow if we must reap. Today’s memory verse states, “There is that scattereth and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.’ Teachers learn more by teaching, so it is in other professions. Is there a service you can render at home, school or Church? Can you support the needy with anything? Do it without delay: The reward will come.


What is withheld can never increase


Be faithful in giving to God and humanity.
