PROSPERITY 2

Last week we read that the first principle of prosperity is to GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU.  God blesses
and prospers a generous and cheerful giver.

But why does God bless the giver?

Proverbs 19:17  He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord and HE WILL REWARD HIM FOR WHAT HE HAS
DONE.

As the above scripture states, sometimes God simply wants to reward you for helping your fellow man.  He is re-
warding you for your kindness.

There is a second reason that God blesses and prospers a generous and cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:11  You will be made rich in every way SO THAT YOU CAN BE GENEROUS ON EVERY OCCASION,
and your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.

God blesses a giver BECAUSE HE KNOWS THE GIVER WON’T HOARD THE BLESSING.  GOD KNOWS THAT IF HE
CONTINUES TO BLESS THIS GIVER, HE/SHE WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE OUT OF THE BLESSINGS.  At the same
time, the generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.  It will glorify God to others.

The above scripture, 2 Corinthians 9:11 says “you will be made rich in every way.”  Some examples of blessings
are blessings of kindness, blessings of love, blessings of peace of mind, blessings of people accepting the Lord,
blessings of having a working car or having food and shelter, blessings of a raise at work, etc.

When it comes to blessings of financial prosperity, God will rarely bless you with financial prosperity without some
effort on your part.  To be financially sound, God combines the first principle of GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO
YOU with 4 other priciples.

Next week we will read about the second principle of prosperity.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
