A Giving Mindset

There is one who scatters, yet increases
more; And there is one who withholds more than is right, But it leads to
poverty. The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be
watered himself
(Proverbs 11:24-25).
  
The
principles of the kingdom of God are often contrary to natural principles and
human thinking. In the kingdom of God to live you must die; to lead you must
serve; to be first, you must be last; and to receive you must give!
  
The
mind is trained to think logically. It’s not logical to receive by giving, but
that’s the way the kingdom operates. We must train ourselves to value kingdom
principles and we must renew our minds to what the Father values. Faith in the
kingdom principles of the Word of God will bring increase to your life!
  
God’s
method of increase in our lives is through our giving. Giving opens us up to
the wisdom of God, the windows of heaven, and begins the principle of blessing
in our lives. Notice the scriptures:
    
But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly,
and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully
(2 Corinthians 9:6). Now may
He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply
the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness
(2 Corinthians
9:10).
Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down,
shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the
same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you
(Luke 6:38). Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for
whatever a man sows, that he will also reap
(Galatians 6:7). Honor the Lord
with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your increase; So
your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine

(Proverbs 3:9-10).
Jesus said that our giving would lay up treasures in heaven
for us, and that our giving reveals where our heart is (Matthew 6: 19-21).
 
Make a decision today to be a
giver, a scatterer, a sower, a blesser! Don’t wait for excess. Give now! Give
with expectation. He gives seed to the
sower
.   He who observes the wind [and waits for all conditions to
be favorable] will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap
(Ecclesiastes 11:4 – Amplified).
 
Put your faith to work in God’s
principles. Expect the wisdom of God, the favor of God, and the blessings of
God to be upon you. Expect the works of your hands to be blessed! Expect to
receive. When you do, don’t eat all of your seed! Sow some more. It’s a never
ending process. It’s a foundational principle in the kingdom of God.
The principle of giving will revolutionize your life!
