We spent all of February talking about matters of the heart, hardened hearts, circumcised hearts, and guarded hearts. One of the things that tends to reveal our hearts the most is money!
Matthew 6:24 says, "No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."
For the month of March, in honor of St. Patrick's Day and everything green, we are going to talk about our faith as it relates to our finances. In this 3rd episode we are going to look at the promises of generosity, and why it pays to be a giver. The Scriptures we will be referencing are Proverbs 3:9-10, Proverbs 11:24, and 2 Corinthians 9:6-15.
Get your pens and pads ready, as we align our faith with our finances!

"And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves:" Matthew 10:6-8
Those in need around us are our privilege and opportunity and our test from the One who gave us all we currently possess. ... "He that hath pity upon the poor (especially believers in need) lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again." (Proverbs 19:17)
"Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard." Proverbs 21:13
“Only they would that we should remember the poor; the same which I also was forward to do.” Galatians 2:10
Acts of generosity, big or small, always generate miracles of life. Generosity begets generosity and creates a circular flow of compassion and gratitude. Sharing is the true language of interdependence, and life invites us to be generous both in giving and in receiving. When we live out of a spirit of sharing, we come to know the full meaning of loving-kindness. Sharing is not to be thought of simply in material terms, for there is also the generosity of judgment, of patience, of forgiveness, of gentle presence.When the law of scarcity is foremost in our thoughts, human nature expresses itself in terms of acquisitive desire. This need to acquire is built on a fear of lack. We compete for what we think will run out, what there cannot possibly be enough of: divine favor, parental love, the affections of others, commodities, natural resources. We create categories of the chosen and the unchosen, suffer sibling rivalry and jealous murder, and wage war over land, oil and water resources. The human propensity to possess, and to protect possession, forms the basis of strife and injustice. Violence grows out of rivalry, and rivalry out of a notion of scarcity. The truth of the matter is that this passion for acquisition robs us of life. As Joseph Campbell puts it, We should not expect good to come to us but rather to flow out from us

Reading Genesis 13. I mentioned previously that Abram was supposed to leave family behind, but he brought his nephew Lot. Well, it started making trouble by the next chapter. The two had to separate because they were so blessed and wealthy. Abram gave Lot the choice of where to go, and Lot chose the very best, choicest land. Abram agreed without any argument at all, and the next thing that happened was that God renewed a wonderful promise to him. And, by the way, Lot ended up in very big trouble as a result of his choice of where to live.
Abram gives us a great example of selfless generosity, which there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of in the world today. I think when we emulate Abram's example, we are also far more blessed than whatever it is we "gave up."
These days the terms good and God seem synonymous. We believe what’s generally accepted as good must be in line with God’s will. Generosity, humility, justice?good. Selfishness, arrogance, cruelty?evil. The distinction seems pretty straightforward. But is that all there is to it? If good is so obvious, why does the Bible say that we need discernment to recognize it?
Good or God? isn’t another self-help message. This is a timely prophetic wake-up all that will empower you to engage with God on a new level that will change every aspect of your life!
