Is giving a way of life for you? Giving should be a way of life but it is not so with many people because of the economic situation of the nations, wrong attitude to money and selfishness. Some people would love to give freely but lack the power to do so. But with the giving grace, it is easy to give cheerfully and with joy. This article tells you what you need to know about this giving grace.
About the giving grace of God
1. God is the source
Giving is an attribute of God. Man naturally is selfish and always wants to be on the receiving side. But for you to give as a way of life, you need the grace of God. God is able to make the giving grace come on you abundantly.
2. It is a gift
The grace to give is a gift from God not a wage. God gives it to whoever desires freely. You do not have to work for it to be given to you, just reach out and receive it. Paul calls it unspeakable, indescribable, inexpressible, free gift.
3. It is not a function of how much money one has
Many wealthy people are stingy. They would rather die than give. Yet, a seemingly poor man with the giving grace will still give out of his poverty. The good news is that giving is a covenant practice for prosperity. Give your way to abundance.
4. It is an expression of love
Having this amazing grace to give enables you to prove the sincerity of your love easily without hesitating or grudging. By this grace, Jesus was able to strip Himself of His riches so that through his poverty we might be rich, all because of His awesome love for us.
5. It is according to what you have
This grace does not make you to give what you do not have. It is not for other people to be eased and you burdened! It encourages equality that your abundance may be a supply for their want and their abundance may be a supply also for your want.
6. It is an expression of righteousness
Righteousness manifests itself in active goodness, kindness and charity, and giving is an act of goodness, kindness and charity. Therefore, the giving grace increases your fruits of righteousness.
7. It provokes prayer and thanksgiving unto God
The exceeding grace of God upon you that enabled you to give causes the recipients to pray for you earnestly and to give thanks unto God for enabling you to give to them.
