The path of a Believer is ordained to be progressive; but if it feels like you're not making progress, then check your giving life. Scripture tells us that "the gift of a man makes room for him". Salvation may give us assurance for progress, but it is our giving that conveys us through the ways of progress. The reason why many believers are stagnated in life is probably because they mistake assurance for progress for progress itself.
Giving is the vehicle that starts the journey into progress. Salvation is like a plane ticket, while giving is like the plane itself. Your ticket assures a flight, but without a plane, you can't reach your destination. Christianity is a call to love; and true love is expressed by giving. I've discovered that; everytime I give, God gives me ideas on how to make even more than what I gave. Don't tell me you don't have ideas, because what you really don't have is a giving heart. Sound ideas are natural attributes of a giver.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; GIVING MAY BE HARD WHEN YOU START, BUT IF YOU DON'T WITHDRAW FROM IT, YOU'D COME TO LOVE IT. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
