10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER GIVE – Pt 2

2 Samuel 24:21
“And David said, “To buy the threshing floor from you, to build an altar to the Lord, that the plague may be withdrawn from the people.
Now Araunah said to David, “Let my lord the king take and offer up whatever seems good to him. Look, here are oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing implements and the yokes of the oxen for wood. All these, O king, Araunah has given to the king.”
And Araunah said to the king, “May the Lord your God accept you.”
Then the king said to Araunah, “No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God with that which costs me nothing.” So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver. And David built there an altar to the Lord, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the Lord heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel.

6. NEVER GIVE UNLESS IT BREAKS THE CURSE – PLAGUE
To buy the threshing floor from you, to build an altar to the Lord, that the plague may be withdrawn from the people.
Link all your giving to reaching the lost.

7. NEVER GIVE WITHOUT ENOUGH TO BUY SOME OXEN
So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
Don’t give to meet a need. Give to have abundant resource for all the work of God.

8. NEVER GIVE JUST ONE OFFERING – BURNT & PEACE
And David built there an altar to the Lord, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings.
Sometimes your giving is a sacrificial offering – other times it is a celebration offering.

9. NEVER GIVE WHAT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE
And Araunah said to the king, “May the Lord your God accept you.”
Never give second hand or imperfect offerings.
Never give out of guilt or pressure to conform.

10. NEVER GIVE WITHOUT SEEING YOUR GIVING AS PRAYER
So the Lord heeded the prayers for the land, and the plague was withdrawn from Israel.
God answers prayer. Make sure you attach prayer to every act of giving.

AS YOU GIVE – SO YOU SHALL RECEIVE
