“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again”.— Luke 6:38
It was said of Calvin Coolidge, “No man was ever honored by what he received.” Honor has been the reward of what he gave.” In essence, as you give your time, energy, talents, and material or financial resources to God and humanity, so shall you get. Do it cheerfully and sacrificially as the needs arise. Giving can be costly! Yes, very costly sometimes.
Beloved, Jesus gave His life as a ransom for many and got it back in a glorified form and is alive forevermore. Have you given your life to Christ? Do you give to needy youth and others? Do you have the desire to invent something or provide services that will improve the lives of suffering humanity? You will be rewarded if you do. Many people’s names are in the Hall of Fame of their nations because of their writings, inventions, and other achievements. Also, ensure your name is in the Book of Life. Giving brings joy, good health, and lasting memory because you are only remembered by what you have done.
Ensure your name is in the Book of Life
What you give will come back to you in many ways.
