Guidelines for Giving
Guidelines for Giving from the book: Lists to Live By
1. Give trustingly - focus on God's faithfulness instead of on what you don't have.
2, Give expectantly - know that God will provide for all your needs according to His riches in glory.
3. Give joyfully - realize that God blesses giving and trust.
4. Give gratefully - acknowledge all the blessings that God has given to you.
5. Give lavishly - know that you cannot outgive God!
Personal note: Giving is not easy to do when you have bills to pay, children to feed, and you might not be sure of another pay check. But I have learned that God is trust worthy and He will provide. It might not be what you want. I remember a time when we lived on peanut butter sandwiches. But I can also say I have never gone hungry, nor have my children. Some times it has been a struggle but God has always provided, and as I have learned to trust Him more, He has provided more. Trust Him. He will not let you down. You might not get everything you want, but you will get everything you need. God bless!
