One of the reasons for not giving away the one and the only thing you have is so that you can continue to have it in the future. Sometimes giving away what you have is like losing power, value and safety that you might need for the future. But most seed can only be propagated by giving away the best that you have in order to get it more multiplied for the future. Abraham gave to God his only son Isaac in obedience to God’s voice. Abraham was like losing the one and the only thing that meant everything to his life, yet he continue to obey and give away what he loved. In this way Abraham was giving away what he loved most, Isaac his son, to the one he loved, God. Someone once said, “Love is not love until it gives away what it loves, to the one it loves”
Because of giving and obedience, God assured that He was going to multiply Abraham greatly and protect him from his enemies. A special blessing that is associated with obedience and giving is assured multiplications and security. You will enjoy the goodness of God even at the gates of your enemies when you obey and give.
Gen 22:16-18 Says “and said, “By myself I have sworn, declares the LORD, because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, (17) I will surely bless you, and I will surely multiply your offspring as the stars of heaven and as the sand that is on the seashore. And your offspring shall possess the gate of his enemies, (18) and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice.” “
Obey and give. From Simtandile Dlepuma. Stay blessed.
