– Calvin Coolidge

“I judge all things only by the price they shall gain in eternity.”

— John Wesley (1703-91), English evangelist and founder of Methodism

“As base a thing as money often is, yet it can be transmuted into everlasting treasure. It can be converted into food for the hungry and clothing for the poor. It can keep a missionary actively winning lost men to the light of the gospel and thus transmute itself into heavenly values. Any temporal possession can be turned into everlasting wealth. Whatever is given to Christ is immediately touched with immortality.”

— A.W. Tozer (1897-1963), American pastor and writer

It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Giving Bible Verses

These are some of my favorite Bible verses about giving. There really are a ton of verses about giving in the Bible and these are just a select few of my favs. Again, if you have any that you want to share, please do so in the comments below…

Deuteronomy 15:10

Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

Proverbs 11:24-25

There is one who scatters, and yet increases all the more, and there is one who withholds what is justly due, and yet it results only in want. The generous man will be prosperous, and he who waters will himself be watered.

Malachi 3:10

“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.

Luke 6:38

Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.

Romans 12:8

…Or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.

Philippians 4:15-17

And you yourselves also know, Philippians, that at the first preaching of the gospel, after I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you alone; for even in Thessalonica you send a gift more than once for my needs. Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account.

    2 Cor 8:12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
    13 For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
    14 But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
    15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.

    My monthly income is $1000. After rent, food, student loan payment, and medical expenses, I have about $80 left. How much should I give?

    • Debbie

      Giving is not always in terms of money. You can give your time to help others.

    • sellyemmanuel

      malachi 3:10 bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse,that there may be meat in mine house,and prove me now herewith,saith the Lord of hosts,if i will not open you the windows of heaven,and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it…
      so,meaning 10% of your income 100dollars/month, after you put apart this amount, you start to pay everything,dnt be afraid that it maybe not enough for all expenses,there will start your faith to increase and trust only to the Lord Jesus Christ who promised us to obey Him and He will give us all our needs..amen.. Godbless

    You give to the best of your ability as t
    he HOly Spirit urges.

    1 Tim 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

    Christians are commanded to give freely, sacrificially, generously, regularly, joyfully and with the motivation of love for God and man. The following New Covenant free-will principles are found in Second Corinthians, chapters 8 and 9: (1) Giving is a “grace.” These chapters use the Greek word for “grace” eight times in reference to helping poor saints. (2) Give yourself to God first (8:5). (3) Give yourself to knowing God’s will (8:5). (4) Give in response to Christ’s gift (8:9; 9:15). (5) Give out of a sincere desire (8:8, 10, 12; 9:7). (6) Do not give because of any commandment (8:8, 10; 9:7). (7) Give beyond your ability (8:3, 11-12). (8) Give to produce equality. This means that those who have more should give more in order to make up for the inability of those who cannot afford to give as much (8:12-14). (9) Give joyfully (8:2). (10) Give because you are growing spiritually (8:3-4, 7). (11) Give because you want to continue growing spiritually (9:8, 10-11). (12) Give because you are hearing the gospel preached (9:13).

    “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” -Luke 6:38

    Sometimes, giving requires you to step outside your comfort zone and give expecting God to honor His word. God is not a man who shall lie. The promise is only as good from the person it comes from. Even if you’re only able to give $1.00…God honors that. God bless you in Jesus name!
