It may interest you to know that a great number of Christians and Bible Scholars do not understand or refuse to understand the deeper meaning of today’s memory verse.

What does it mean to sow sparingly? sowing sparingly is an act of giving only a little back to God from the resources He has blessed you with. How do you quantify “Little”? “Little” means the smallest part of what you are able to give to God. An illustration of how we are expected to give can be seen in Luke 21:3-4:

“And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had. “

the above scripture can be described as the mathematics of giving from God’s perceptive. The quality of your giving is hidden in what remains in your pocket after you have given to God. Open Heaven 15 June 2018

Our Lord Jesus Christ said that the rich give unto God out of the abundance of what we have (I align myself with the rich in verse 4 because I want to be numbered among the flourishing); whereas, the poor among us, in spite of their need, give all or almost all that they have. This clearly tells us that those of us who are rich should not compare what we give with what others give because we are not all operating on the same level of prosperity.

Do you know that in the parable of the unprofitable servant, if the servant who received five talents had only gained two additional talents, he would have received less commendation than the servant who received two and gain two more (Matthew 25:14-30)? To whom much is given, much is expected. This is the reason why it is dangerous to indulge in self-comparison with others.

The story of the giving widow also shows that it is wrong for us to despise the poor for giving the little that they have. More often than not, they have given a higher percentage of what they have compared to the rich amongst us. Unfortunately, in our churches today, we no longer see the type of outburst of appreciation that Jesus Christ expressed over the action of the poor widow.

Sadly, instead of commending, we rather despise those who give out of their poor condition. Beloved , the question is, after you have dropped your offering, how much do you have left for wants (not needs)? I appeal to you to sow bountifully into the work of God’s kingdom when next the opportunity comes your way, and you will reap bountifully in Jesus’ Name.

Open Heaven 14 June 2018 Thursday Hymn

Sing hymn 12 – TAKE MY LIFE, AND LET IT BE

Take my life, and let it be

Consecrated, Lord, to Thee;

Take my moments and my days,

Let them flow in ceaseless praise,

Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

 

Take my hands, and let them

move

At the impulse of Thy love;

Take my feet and let them be

Swift and beautiful for Thee,

Swift and beautiful for Thee.

 

Take my voice, and let me sing

Always, only, for my King;

Take my lips, and let them be

Filled with messages from Thee,

Filled with messages from Thee.

 

Take my sliver and my gold;

Not a mite would I withhold;

Take my intellect, and use

Every power as Thou shalt choose

Every power as Thou shalt choose.

 

Take my will, and make it Thine;

It shall be no longer mine.

Take my heart; it is Thine own;

It shall be Thy royal throne,

It shall be Thy royal throne.

 

Take my love; my Lord, I pour

At Thy feet its treasure-store.

Take myself, and I will be

Ever, only, all for Thee,

Ever, only, all for thee

  1. This book has been helpful to me …. even if I don’t really study the Bible the open heaven helps me to do so

  2. Liz Khisa Ouma. I couldn’t buy the hardcopy devotional this year. But only got to know this page yesterday after calling RCCG Solution centre Nrb. I didn’t know what sowing sparingly was. Now I know. Thanks so much. I have learnt so much over the years of using the open heaven devotional. God bless you who make it possible for many to access it. Shalom

  3. Am always bless with open heaven with so much testimonies God bless daddy Adeboye and his team that has made it possible for me to always have access In Jesus Name whilst thanking God for His word, blessing & testimonies.

  4. I am blessed but I will continue to preach against anybody giving God N20 as offering. If we can spend N3000 for one meal for the family why should give Him so little.

  5. I thank God for this day and for the life of our father in the Lord. Mote anointing in Jesus name

  6. I bless the name of the Lord for what He is doing through our daddy ADEBOYE.. I pray for more anointing and sufficient Grace for he and his family.. Thank you for also sharing God’s word, I was blessed today.
    Shalom!

  7. The act of giving is a virtue as the willingness to give is not inherent in every man. However, It’s a moment of teaching like this that the reality is made obvious to many as it has always been here. Thank God for this exposition! Daddy, may the Almighty God Himself rewards you richly.

  8. Thanks be to God. I have been blessed by today’s message. God bless Daddy GO. More grace and more anointing.

  9. God bless our daddy for giving us a dimension of giving that we never knew, it makes me to see giving with a new perspective.lt will definitely change my way of giving. Sincerely we do a lot of comparison by looking at what others give and then give the same not minding that our financial status are different. I pray we all change.
