The Blessings and Blessedness of Giving to God.

THE BLESSING AND BLESSEDNESS OF GIVING TO GOD

I have shewed you all things, how that so laboring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said, it is more blessed to give than to receive. (Acts 20:35).

It is a well-established fact that not many people, children of God inclusive, are well aware of the blessings and blessedness of giving to the All-sufficient God. And,due to this fact,many people carry out this all-important obligation to God with the attitude they assume when they give to their fellow men. That is the attitude of conscious and conscientious conservativeness and carefulness.I mean , they are very much uncertain and unsettled about the faithfulness and integrity of the beneficiaries of such gifts before they give. But, that is not what it should be when we give to God. We should give Him with an attitude of confidence in His faithfulness to reward us. We should have respect of the recompense of reward from the Almighty God.

This Kingdom which is both spiritual and celestial in nature is where God and His holy angels live. It is also where he (God) has prepared for all those who identified with him here on earth.
