GIVING AND RECEIVING (Luke 6:38; 2Cor 9:6; Gal 6:7)
Giving and Receiving can be said to be the only way to prosper in the Kingdom of God. Under the new law that governs us in the Kingdom (the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus); it reveals one of the most powerful principles of prosperity to us. You receive or reap what you give or sow the only way to always remaining in supply is by giving.
In Luke 6:38, Jesus explains what happens when we give. He says, “Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over shall men give unto your bosom” What he is saying to us is that when we give, we have in abundance. He will cause men to give unto us. In other words, He will open doors of opportunities and favour for us in the sight of men. Paul recognizes this fact when in Acts 20: 35b he reminds us about the words of Jesus Christ that, “It is more blessed to give than receive”.
In 2Cor 9:6. Paul explains the importance of the measure we ought to give, which corroborates Luke 6: 38b that the measure, which you give, is the measure you receive. Paul states, “He who sows bountifully shall reap also bountifully”.
Furthermore in Galatians 6:7.the principle is also stated in a different form “…for whatsoever a man soweth, that he shall reap’. Since giving is seen in our hand. We know that a farmer always sows the best of his seeds or his yields. In other words, we should sow our best to the Kingdom of God.
