Dear Beloved- in- Christ,

Greetings in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ”

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38

This passage teaches us that we control the flow (amount) of God’s blessing and provision to our need. If we give spoonfuls to the Lord, He will pick up the same spoon we used and use it to spoon out what we ask for. If we have faith to give shovelfuls to the Lord, He will pick up the same shovel and use it to shovel back to us what we need in much more abundant blessing. 

God does not measure our giving by the amount we give. He rewards us according to what is being left after we give. Jesus said, the tiny amount given by the widow was greater than by all the others because it was all she had. (Luke 21:1-4). Generous giving is proof of our love, faith and maturity (2 Corr 8:24; 9:6,8,13). A generous believer causes others to give thanks to God. The Macedonian Christians were in great poverty (2 Corr 8:2), yet they gave liberally. They had learned obedience in giving. They had learned that giving brings blessing and breaks the curse of poverty. To refuse to be a faithful steward, by giving, is an act of robbery and rebellion toward God (Mal.3:8-12). 

This month we are observing harvest festival on 19th November.  As we all know, we are focusing mainly on our parsonage project. We need 16 lakhs more to accomplish our task. It will only happen through our wholehearted support and generosity. Each member of our Church has to try to contribute particularly in cover collection and in auction. Try to invite your well-wishers and friends also to be part of our harvest festival. 

With love and prayers.
