This coming fall, the 4th book in the series about the Ten Commandments will be published. I have called it Grace of Giving and Tate Publishing is currently working on the cover. The book offers a New Testament view of the 8th Commandment. Not stealing is merely being obedient to the Law, cheerfully giving is fulfilling the Law! Now that all edits are final, I keep finding more scriptures about the subject of giving. In Proverbs 11:24-25 it says,
One man gives freely, yet gains even more. Another witholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous man will prosper, he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
I love that, a new Testament principle in Old Testament times. Jesus teaches us in Luke 6:38
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.
Giving is the key to a life without moneyproblems! I truly believe this. I can trust God to be faithful to His Word. That is a very encouraging thought, especially in times of economic uncertainty: if we keep giving we will always have enough!
I dare you to take His Word serious!
