I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’ “Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?’ “And he will answer, ‘I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.’ 2. Pressed down, shaken together, running over – Luke 6: 38 ‘Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.’ 3. God loves a cheerful giver – 2 Corinthians 9: 6-8 ‘Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.’ 4. Give with generosity and not with a grudge – Deuteronomy 15:10 ‘Give generously to the poor, not grudgingly, for the Lord your God will bless you in everything you do.’ 5. Sacrificial Giving of the poor widow – Mark 12:41-44 ‘Jesus sat down near the collection box in the Temple and watched as the crowds dropped in their money. Many rich people put in large amounts. Then a poor widow came and dropped in two small coins. Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has given more than all the others who are making contributions. For they gave a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she had to live on.”’ 6. Sincere Giving, Genuine attitude – James 2:15-16 ‘Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do?’ 7. The Example of Paul in Giving – Acts 20:35 ‘And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” 8. Giving is a Responsibility – Deuteronomy 16:17 ‘All must give as they are able, according to the blessings given to them by the Lord your God.’ 9. Radical Giving – Luke 18:22 ‘When Jesus heard his answer, he said, “There is still one thing you haven’t done. Sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”’ 10. Now, not tomorrow, is the time to help – Proverbs 3:27-28 ‘Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it’s in your power to help them. If you can help your neighbour now, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow, and then I’ll help you.”’
