     During the last supper, on the night that Jesus was arrested, He told those who were with Him this: (John 14:15–18 NKJV)  "If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of t...

    Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw it, he said to himself, "This man, if he were a prophet, would have perceived who and what kind of woman this is who touches him, that she is a sinner." Jesus answered him, "Simon, I have something to tell you." He said, "Teacher, say on." "A certain len...

A Christmas Story

  • Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you. Luke 6:38 ESV

    As Christmas approached, we felt like doing something special. Looking back, I am sure that it was the Holy Spirit prompting us because He wanted to bless us, and needed a reason. We needed to be givers for what was soon coming.

    We owned a small computer business and it was really slow that year. We had a lot of spare parts and time, but very little money. So we came up with this idea that we would take all the spare parts that we could muster and build them into working computers. We then planned to find some widows without one and bless them. So we did just that.

    We made a few people happy and everyone had a great Christmas. Then in January a client contacted us and gave us over $10,000 of new computer equipment. We got things that we would not have dreamed of buying. If you get the urge to bless someone, go with it. It is probably the Holy Spirit prompting you so He can in return bless you with something.

    God could bless you anyway, but He did say give and it will be given to you. I didn't write it, I read it. The reverse could read: 'Don't give and it will not be given to you.' Sowing and reaping works just as surely as farmers plant and then harvest. If you don't plant something, the only things that reliably come up are the weeds.

    Prayer: Father, show me the opportunities in my life to plant a seed. Guide me and give me wisdom in my giving, in the name of Jesus.

It seems to me that so many people think that God is some sort of Santa Clause, that to me does not seem the case. I have found that His promises are very real, but they are provisinal on us doing the right thing first, then He will act. Give and it shall be given back, or seek first His kingdom and His rightousness and all these things will be added unto you. There is no shortage with God, He is just waiting on you, really take pleasure in who God is and serve Him only, He will give you the desires of your heart!

Amen, I find when I give without expecting anything in return, that not only do I feel joy in the giving, but later on down the road He gives it back to me increased.
