Mistakes In Giving. by uchkochi(m): 12:20pm On Jul 16, 2019

If you do not pay your tithe or give your offerings, if you do not sow seeds you are not permitted to prosper financially. Financial prosperity does not answer to prayer or fasting, it has nothing to do with your confession or assumptions. Financial prosperity only answer to giving, it respects seed sowing. Malachi 3:10.

You don’t claim prosperity by praying because it is not a promise, it is a covenant. Genesis 8:21-22 and Jeremiah 33:20-21. It is covenant practice that brings about prosperity. It is the blessing of the LORD that makes rich and adds no sorrow to it. Proverbs 10:22.

But why is it that people still lack even when they are givers? These are what to take into consideration when giving.

1.When you give, do not see yourself as giving to a man or a pastor or a church or ministry, see yourself as giving to the LORD.

2.You are not giving away your money or material or time but you are investing it in the kingdom of God. And it has great rewards even here on earth. Genesis 8:22, Deuteronomy 28:1-14.

3.You must know that God is not in need; rather it is you that is in need. The silver and Gold belongs to God.Haggi 1:8

4.You are not helping God’s work when you give; rather you are obeying God because you need God’s helps.

5.You must not be forced, or cajoled to give. Giving must be done willingly. Isaiah 1: 19. 2nd Corinthians 8:12.

6.You must give cheerfully not grumbling. God loves a cheerful giver.

7.Your giving must be motivated by love and faith.

8.You must not be tasked to give to God. Give according to what you have, not according to what you do not have.

9.Do not make a vow you know you may not pay. Making a vow and not redeeming it is a sin.

10.After you have given to the LORD, Praise God for the grace to give regularly. Psalms 67:5-7

11.God gives seeds to the sower and bread to the eater, so desire to sow seeds and God will put it in your hands.

12.Do not borrow to give, it is wrong. When Elijah asked the widow to borrow, He didn’t tell her to borrow money, he asked her to borrow jars, which is vessels. The widow gave what she had, her last meal.

13.Tithes are fixed, Ten percent of your increase. Offerings are not fixed, rather they are as God blesses and increases you.
