“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)

COMMENT: In First Samuel 1:10,11 we find Hannah, a woman who was deeply depressed because she was barren. As she wept, she made a petition to God for a male child. Furthermore, she promised to give her baby to God if He would grant her request. Well, God came through for Hannah and she gave birth to Samuel. Now can you imagine the anguish our heroine must have felt when it became time to give her only child to live out his life in the House of the Lord? Well, as Paul Harvey would say: And here’s the rest of the story. “And the Lord visited Hannah, so that she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters.” (1 Samuel 2:21) That reminds me of what God said about tithing: “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground.” (Malachi 3:10,11)
SCRIPTURE STUDY: Deut. 28 2-8 and Deut. 28:11-13, Luke 6:38 and John 10:10
WISE SAYING: THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN RECEIVE WITH CLOSED HANDS
