Give

The words of Jesus are commands, not suggestions, but commands.

He said, "Give and it shall be given to you," (Luke 6:38).

Will the child of God hesitate?

Yes.

Will the child of God be obedient?

Yes.

Why?

Because the child of God loves her Lord.

"If you love me, keep my commands," (John 14:15).

Will the child of God ask questions of her Lord?

Yes.

She will ask for wisdom. She will ponder. She will, after all is said and done, be obedient.

Why?

Because what is proof of love for God?

Not words. Words are easy. Words are cheap.

Keep his commands; that is proof of love (I John 5:3).

Give.

It proves you love God. It proves you live by faith. It proves where you will spend eternity.

It proves you love not this world.

It proves to your world in whom you believe.

It proves you don't worry about tomorrow.

Give and it shall be given to you.

Believe it?

Then you'll do it.

Obedience is proof of belief.

Give.
