But this I say, he which soweth sparingly; shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 1 Corinthians 9:6

There is a principle of giving that God wants us to appreciate.

Scripture tells us that God showed His acts to the children of Israel but to Moses, He showed His ways. (Psalm 103:7). And for the new creation, God’s ways are more important than His acts. When God is dealing with you based on His acts, it is an ignorant way of serving God.

Knowing God’s ways is important. This is how we get more productive. Our Christian life is one based on giving.

There could not have been salvation without the giving of our Lord, Jesus Christ. This is the reason why the devil will greatly fight against your giving: he knows how important and instrumental it will be for you.

Look at Philippians 2:5-9,

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him and given him a name which is above every name: 

You see, the sacrifice of Jesus is the greatest sacrifice that can be offered. Christ gave up Himself; submitted His will to that of the Father because of the mindset (mentality) He operated life with. God wants us to think like Jesus; to find out His thinking pattern and approach things in that manner.

He wants us to think and process information in that manner. There is a mentality for the Godchild. The quickest way to know a man’s mind is in the consistency of the things he says.

For the Godchild to know the mind of Christ, then we have got to check His Words. All through scriptures we see the consistency of the Word of God.

The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy and the spirit of prophecy has been. So His idea from the beginning of the world can be known.

What is God’s idea of giving? Does God understand giving in lack? Is there a way God wants giving to be done? What does God do with the giving, the giver, and the receiver? Search the Word today so that in them you can think that you have eternal life.

DECLARATION:
I have the mind of Christ. I am informed and I pattern my life after the Word of God.
