Giving (and offering) is mentioned more than 880 times in the Bible. Giving is something that every follower of Jesus is expected to do. We give of our time, of our talents and of our treasures to God and His work.
In Luke 6:38 Jesus makes a clear statement. In reality he is presenting a promise. We are to give and we will receive.
We are to give to God. God brings the increase for our gift. It overflows and blesses. No matter the size of our gift, God will multiply it to make an impact for His glory, for His name, for His work. Our gifts are limited but He is the infinite God who multiplies the gift. Like the five fishes and two loaves, the Lord multiplies it to make a great impact.
This command also has a promise. The promise is that God will return our gift back to us multiplied. What a blessing, what a promise! Our God is a generous God. He is not like any other god.
He will return the gift with a great measure, pressed down, shaken together and overflowing. God is always faithful. God is always fulfilling His promises.
If you believe this promise God will use your gift for His work and for your blessing. Today it is estimated that Muslim governments spend more than $1 billion each year to spread Islam. Many people feel that this is a huge avalanche of material influence that cannot be stopped. I beg to differ.
Our financial gifts to God's work among Muslims might seem small in the sight of this huge dollar amount, but God is always faithful. He will multiply it, so the glory goes to Him.
God will return the gift multiplied back to you so he gets the glory. The Almighty never gives his glory to another.
Let us not confuse small with insignificant. Your gift will be used by God to impact the Muslim world.
