R-37 CHRISTIAN GIVING 財物奉獻
Mark 12:41-44; 1 Corinthians 16:2a; Luke 6:38a; 2 Corinthians 9:6-8; Acts 20:35 (NKJV)
Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much. Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadrans. So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury; for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood."
On the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper,...
Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom...
But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.
I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
