Glorious Giving

 Give, and it will be given to you.  Luke 6:38

Give," Christ commanded. Yet it was more than a command. It was an invitation to glorious and abundant living. If a person gets his attitude toward money right, it will help straighten out almost every other area of his life.
Have you ever realized just how cruel and deceptive a master money can be? Some people spend their entire lives slavishly serving it-often without even realizing it. No wonder Jesus warned, "You cannot serve both God and Money"(Matt.6:24 NIV).
    The chief motive of the selfish, unregenerate person is "get." The chief motive of the dedicated Christian should be "give." Jesus said, "Give, and it will be given to you." It's a promise, and we know Jesus never breaks His promises.
     Getting...or giving? Which is true of you?
