Proverbs 21:26 states that the righteous give and do not hold back. The New Living Translation renders this verse as “the godly love to give”. In fact, giving itself is an expression of righteousness, because the one who gives without sparing believes in God to be the supplier of all their needs. Jesus said, “Give and it will be given back to you” (Luke 6:38). Abraham knew this and he was willing to give his son, his only son, Isaac, whom he loved, as a sacrifice to God, because he believed that God will give his son back to him, even if that meant, that God would raise Isaac from the dead (Hebrews 11:9). Abraham believed God (and gave without holding back) and it was accounted to him for righteousness (Galatians 3:6).
Points to ponder:
Are you willing to give your ALL without holding back? Let us give our everything to Jesus Christ and believe in him so that we are accounted righteous in God’s sight. The righteous give and spares not in anything.
Proverbs 21:26 (KJV)
26 He coveteth greedily all the day long: but the righteous giveth and spareth not.
Galatians 3:6 (KJV)
6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
