God blesses us by Pastor Ed Young
So really when you think about it people say, “Well Ed, you must be talking about giving today.” No, I am not talking about giving because we are not really giving anything. We are simply living. Because if we give, that means we own something. We don’t own anything so, we’re really returning.
Whenever we’re talking about this stuff it’s about returning. So just say the word return with me, “Return.” So again, you’re not giving, I’m not giving, we’re just returning something that is already God’s. And when I return it to the house, which scripture talks about, I’m simply saying, “God, you are number one in my life. You are Lord of my life. You are running the show. You’ve got the reins. You’re God, I’m not. You’re the owner God, and I’m the manager.”
While I am returning, while I’m blessing, and let’s just say while we’re giving, what happens? It meets a need in another situation. It also meets the need in this situation. It meets the need in someone else’s life, and it meets the need in my life as well.
And that’s what’s so ironic about the economy of God. As I decide and resolve to bless others, I am being blessed the moment I make this decision to be blessed. Now, some people out there say, “Okay, I’ve got it. You give to get. So I will give, and I will get. I’ll give and get and give and get.”
No. We get to give. We don’t get to get, we get to give. God blesses us as a result of giving, of blessing others, and blessing the church. God blesses us every single time that we give. Sometimes it’s financially. Yet, oftentimes, it is in ways that money can’t even touch.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Second Baptist
