|BE CONSCIOUS OF THE FUTURE|
Jesus planned your future. John 14:2 – “In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.” What a consciousness for the future. Anyone who gives to others is conscious of the future, because he will find help if he ever falls on hard times. People of God, don’t come around people just because of what you can get, but come around people because of what you can give. It is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35). Grateful receiving like gracious giving comes from the heart.
As a Christian, everything you have today came from God and everything you will receive in your future will come from God. Therefore, the most important thing to remember in living a life of abundance is being a cheerful giver – first to God, then to your fellow men. The Christian who gives his best to God expects God’s best in all areas of life.
If you give, you are helping the people of God and at the same time showing appreciation to God for His provision (2 Corinthians 9:12-13).
