Give It Back

Whenever you get a blessing from God, give it back to him as a love gift.  Offer the blessing back to him in a deliberate act of worship.  If you hoard a thing for yourself, it will turn into spiritual dry rot, as the manna did when it was hoarded. God will never let you hold a spiritual thing for yourself; it has to be given back to him that he may make it a blessing to others.

[Oswald Chambers]

Genesis 12:2 ... And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:

Luke 12:48 ... But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

Luke 18:29-30 ... And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake,  Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.

Luke 6:38 ... Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
