Giving To Others and Receiving From God

Giving To Others and Receiving From God

What the scripture says about Giving

Giving is living; the Love of God is validated by giving to others. Giving is the biblical of demonstrating the love of God, which is why Jesus Christ while on earth encouraged us to give.

However, when we give, we are blessed by God but receiving the blessings of God should not be the yardstick for giving but love else we will receive nothing from God 1corinthians 3:13.
