I would like to remind you that when you build God’s house, God will build your house. This is what the Bible says in I Chronicles 17: 1-13 “…He is the one who will build a house for me, and I will establish his throne forever. . . I will never take away my love from him, as I took it away from your predecessor. . . “
Remember God is not a “Taker”; God is a “Giver.” Whatever we give to God, He will give it back to us “a good measure, pressed down shaken together and running over (Luke 6:38). When we give faithfully to him in our tithes and offerings, He promises to open the windows of Heaven upon our lives and pour out so much blessing that we won’t even have room to contain it (Malachi 3:10). Try it, it works because God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19).
Generous giving comes out of our heart and that is what touches the heart of God. David recognized that God was good to him. God had elevated him from an unnoticed shepherd to the position of a king. He was now living in a palace built of cedar. Out of gratitude, he felt the need to build a house for the ark of God which was being housed in a tent at the time. 1 Chronicles 22:7 “And David said to Solomon: My son, it was my desire to have built a house to the name of the Lord my God”
Giving to God’s work is an investment with eternal rewards for both the giver and the beneficiaries (Church) of the gift. In regard to the giver, Jesus said: “For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done” (Matthew 16:27). There are also eternal benefits for the recipients of the gift. For example, when you give money or other materials to the church, and through that the someone accepts Jesus Christ as personal saviour, then that individual will be in heaven for eternity and heaven rejoices.
Although investing to provide for future family needs is something that God wants us to do (1 Timothy 5:8), giving to God’s work is even more important, as it stores up “treasures in heaven.” Jesus said, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal” (Matthew 6:19, 20).
Brethren anyone who has contributed to God church projects God reward him(Matthew 10:41).Also God rewards with them with financial increase!(2 Chronicles 1:15), God will restore his honor Psalm 126, God will end all his battles Proverbs 16:7. In his reign Solomon never fought any battles because God had silenced the enemies of Solomon through the sacrificial offering Solomon had made when building God a house,
God will reward them with life greatly Psalm 126:5 those who sow in tears shall harvest in joy!, The attention of Jehovah God will come to them. The Roman centurion attracted the attention of Jesus. If you are attracting God in your life you are attracting growth.
You can give money or buy the materials (bricks, cement, sand etc) themselves. Any amount you give or quantity is ok after all “…Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:6-8).
It is easy to become focused on building your portfolio. However, investments are temporary: “For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it” (1 Timothy 6:7). As God blesses your investments, avoid hoarding. Jesus warned, “Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15)
