Let Your Giving Flow From An Attitude Of Abundance

Proverbs 11:25 KJVS
The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.

The word translated ‘liberal’ in the above verse literally means blessing, or prosperity.

So a proper way to read the above verse would be, “The blessed or prosperous soul shall be made fat.”

Reflect on that. Let it sink in.

This verse is not talking about your pocket, purse or bank account. It’s rather referring to your soul—your mind; your mentality; your attitude about yourself.

Abundance is a state of mind. It is how you feel about your self; how you see yourself. It’s not the state of your pocket or bank account. It’s not about what you have or what you don’t have. It’s an inward feeling and perspective of yourself.

Giving is not for stingy souls: Those who see giving as a means to financial gain; Those who want to be blessed through their giving; those who expect to be blessed because they gave—it is not for such.

Giving is for liberal souls: those who know they are already blessed; those who see giving as an opportunity to express their love to the Holy Spirit, to refresh others, to be a blessing—this is what it means to give from an attitude of abundance.

Don’t give so you will be blessed.
Give because you are already blessed.

Genesis 12:2 NIV
“I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.

Observe the order here. God blessed Abram before he became a blessing. So first things first. Before you can be a blessing, you have to be blessed.

  1. First you are blessed.
  2. Then you become a blessing.

Many people reverse the order: They want to be a blessing so they can be blessed; they want to give so they can be blessed. That’s reverse order.

The right order is that you’re blessed by God, then you become a blessing.

Genesis 28:22 NIV
…and this stone that I have set up as a pillar will be God’s house, and of all that you give me I will give you a tenth. ”

Of all that you give me I will give a tenth.
Notice the order: First God gives. Then I give.

Only the blessed can be a blessing. If you don’t feel blessed, if you don’t think you’re already blessed, please don’t give yet. Wait till you know you’re blessed. Then give.
