TOPIC: The Rich Poor Man
What is the use of prosperity that is devoid of charity? The essence of prosperity is generosity.
SCRIPTURE: “I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive” Acts 20:35
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What is the use of prosperity that is devoid of charity? The essence of prosperity is generosity.
MESSAGE: It has been confirmed that poverty many times is not the shortage of money but the shortage of the right mentality to manage resources. And a major mentality in sustaining prosperity is GIVING.
Please understand that giving is living, and quality giving equals quality living. You don’t know the joy of living until you know the joy of giving. You may be a rich man in the eyes of people but as long as no one is feeling the impact of your wealth, you are a poor man with some money.
The truth is, life is a seed; what you sow does not go away, but gives you a way. Those you impact in times of progress are those who may impact you in times of problems (Acts 14:19-20).
What is the use of prosperity that is devoid of charity? You are a rich man yet your mother is looking for what to eat in the village, your brothers cannot pay their school fees, your close friend, neighbour or relative died because there was no money to go to the hospital. You are not a rich man at all; you are actually a poor man with some money.
Beloved, the purpose of riches is outreach; the essence of prosperity is generosity.
Today, be delivered from every spirit of stinginess and receive the grace to be a giver, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: What is the use of prosperity that is devoid of charity? The essence of prosperity is generosity.
1. Refuse to be comfortable where there is a need and you do nothing. You can’t have it without giving it.
2. Do not wait until you have billions in your bank account before you begin to give; start giving from what you have.
