Giving The Best of You

Greetings in the name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Are we are marching on in faith and hope? Knowing that He who called us is faithful to complete the work He has started in us. Never give up, don’t give in. God is with you always.
He is your exceedingly great reward.

Giving is God’s nature and indeed is replicated in our DNA as His Children, the sad thing though is the World has conditioned us to be transactional in our giving. Every giving is tied to a return of some sort – spoken or unspoken. As the saying often goes ‘There is no free lunch”.

“For this is how much God loved the world-he gave his one and only, unique Son as a gift, so now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life”

 Our text is taken from John 3:16 (The Passion Translation)

God gave us His best, His all, even when we were not aware of this gift take less of accepting of it. All God asked for was a reconciliation with us, so we get to spend eternity with Him, just the way he had it planned from the foundations of the Earth.  Once we receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we take up the job of reconciling the world to the Father through His son Jesus.

As you grow older, your eyes are more open to the realities of life, society, the vulnerable, the poor, the sick, the hurting, the angry, and the weak… etc the list is endless.  As children of God, we are expected to show this love to a hurting world, to give of your best to reconcile these ones to the Father.

Love drives your giving; a kind word, a smile, time to listen, a helping hand to the elderly and the weak, a meal, money, clothing, housing etc. If you truly are a child of God, you should never turn a blind eye to the needs of society around you. Jesus went about doing good as He preached the gospel, we can’t be asking people to come to Christ and leave them hungry? We can’t be preaching the good news to neighbors when we can’t even help with carrying their groceries or taking a meal over once in a while? How do we show the Father’s love to a depraved world? By giving of our best. Remember God is your reward and not the accolades of men.

Today, make a choice to show the Father’s love by giving of your best. Make it your act of worship to Him. Bring healing and succor to the world around you by displaying the action of love- giving.
