Give More….

by Pastor Solly Bendrau

“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”

2 Corinthians 9:7

One of the main reasons we are not generous and cheerful givers is because we don’t really trust God enough. We mistakenly think that we have to cover all possible contingencies before we set aside our giving, and so we become afraid to give in case! However, the greatest freedom we will ever experience will come out of giving first and then trusting God to supply our needs.

If I could arrange with Bill Gates to send you a genuine, signed affidavit that every month he would meet your shortfall if you faithfully give to God first, would you then do it? So why would we trust a mere man and fail to trust our heavenly Father who owns everything?


Father God, help me always to trust You and be able to cheerfully give more of myself and more of my time, in the freedom of the knowledge of Your love and Your assurances, through Christ Jesus our Lord.
