CAST YOUR BREAD!

“Put out (CAST) your bread on the face of the waters for after a long time it will come back to you again.” Ecclesiastes 11:1

There are many issues in life that require strong faith and this is one of the testiest one among them. It has been said, “If you keeping on giving, soon we will have something coming back on every wave but most of us (me) want to give and wait on the seashore until it comes back to us before we give anymore.

There are those who take advantage of our giving spirit, and after being taken advantage of a few times we are suspicious of all needs that are presented to us.

We like the scripture that says:
Luke 6:38  "Give and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full--pressed down shaken together to make room for more running over and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back."

Another promise is in Matt. 7:7-8
“Keep on asking and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking and you will find. Keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives. Everyone who seeks finds, and to everyone who knocks the door will be opened."

We are told to be good stewards of goods and we need to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves in the matter of stewardship.

Don't try to give to everybody who comes along for many are just trying to rip you off. A good sob story doesn't mean you owe them anything.

How about this, be led by the Spirit as to what to give to instead of emotional feelings. Sometime The Holy Spirit will say yes, and other times He will say no.

When you are led to keep on casting you will be blessed in your deed.

Be wise and not foolish, but do be open to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit.
