Growing In The Grace Of Giving

The words “believe” or “faith” or some form of the word “believe” is used 272 times in the New Testament. The words “prayer” or “pray” or some form of the word “pray” is used 371 times in the New Testament. But, the words “give” or “giving” or some form of this word “give” is used 2,162 times in the New Testament. Now, let me ask you why does GOD place so much emphasis on this subject? Because He created us and knows the areas that need the greatest attention in our lives. The the Apostle Paul understood the importance of giving and he recognized that GOD had blessed the church at Corinth with many wonderful gifts, and that they were excelling in certain areas of their life. However, he says, ”You are lacking in one thing, you’re weak in one area, and you need to grow in the grace of giving in order to be complete & in order to mature as a believer in Christ.” ( 2 Corinthians 8 )
