To give is to receive

Last week, we visited a few good friends of mine who aren’t believers yet.  I told them about the trip to India and some of them are very interested.  Some immediately gave money to me to support me.

I was very moved and overwhelmed as mentioned earlier, they aren’t believers yet.  However, their heart to support has nothing to do with their faith.  I appreciate you all who listened, who gave financial support.  As they give, I am challenged and encouraged in the same way about my giving to the need.

Give is such a test of faith and act of faith.  Also, faith without work is dead.

Acts 20:35 It is more blessed to give than to receive
Proverbs 22:9 Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor
Luke 6:38 give, and it will be given to you

Though I still have a long way to go but I am believing in God’s faithfulness and promises.
Many of you might know I am a big fan of Andrew Wommack.  Here is his teaching about giving http://www.awmi.net/extra/audio/finance
