When Small Becomes Big Before God

When Small Becomes Big Before God

To the natural eye, small is always small and big is always big. Even when it comes to our act of giving, it is so.

God loves givers because He Himself is a giver. He gave and continues to give His best. He expects the same quality of giving from us. But He is not only interested in the quality but also in the quantity of our giving. It doesn’t mean when we give to God, we have to give in large amounts. Nor does it mean smallness.

Here is a beautiful story that explains it. “Looking up, [Jesus] saw the rich people putting their gifts into the treasury. And He saw also a poor widow putting in two mites (copper coins).” – (Luke 21:1-2)

To the natural eye, what the poor widow offered was little and what the rich offered was abundant. None will find anything wrong with that observation. However, from God’s point of view, it wasn’t so!

Let us read the rest of the story: “And He said, Truly I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them; For they all gave out of their abundance (their surplus); but she has contributed out of her lack and her want, putting in all that she had on which to live.” – (Luke 21:3-4)

This passage shows us how God measures the quantity of our giving.

1. God measures our level of willingness.

He isn’t just interested in the amount of something that we give, whether it is time, finance, skill or whatever. He is more interested in our level of willingness that gets us to give. That is not visible to the natural eye. But God sees it. He loves those who give without any mind-restraint – 100 percent willingly.

“God loves it when the giver delights in the giving” – (2 Corinthians 9:7)

2. God measures our level of devotion.

Devotion is a heart thing. And God measures it in our act of giving. He wants to see how much commitment and dedication go into our giving.

In fact, giving shouldn’t be for the sake of giving. It must be a sign of our commitment to Jesus and our dedication to do whatever He requires from us. For instance, through tithing (giving 10 percent of our income to God) and offering (giving beyond tithe in the interest of God’s Kingdom), we are declaring God as the source of all blessings and our respect for Him.

3. God measures our level of abandonment.

God not only sees how much we give but also how much we give up!

Yes, God loves to see us abundantly blessed in every area of our lives. His plan is not to take things away from us. But He also loves to see us giving away things for the sake of His Kingdom as well as helping others. And the more you give away, the more it’s going to come back to you for the simple reason that you can never out-give God!

“Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life.” – (Mark 10:29-30).

So, remember: to God, small is big when it’s done right!

Social Media : The Latest Avenue To Strengthen Youth’s Faith

Faith and Social Media

Can Social Media Be the Best and Latest Avenue to Strengthen Youth’s Faith?

The social media has taken every one of us to another place where distance and imagination are not a big deal. Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites are very famous right now and already become a household name. Social media truly connects people efficiently and almost make the whole world a few clicks away.

Popularity has two sides; these are the positive and the negative. People have different thoughts with the popularity that social media gets today and how it affects people and communities, especially the youth. Most of our youth today are spending so much time in Facebook and Twitter these days. There are many contradicting concerns with these because some crimes and scandals are rampant in these networking sites. These incidents are really alarming and needs immediate response.Social sites are initially built to make communication easier for everyone but some took so much advantage of this and fooled many.

One of the biggest questions that are thrown to social media right now is, “Can social media be the best and latest avenue to strengthen youth’s faith?”

This is very relevant because you can even notice how young kids are more familiar with Angry Birds, Tweets and photo posting than verses in the Bible. The religious institutions face another challenge since the social media emerged. This requires them to work harder to reach the youth in much easier and faster ways.

It is very amazing how the social media also helped in spreading the great Word of God. There are applications like My Favorite Bible Verse, Daily Blessings, Daily Devotions and Their Eyes Are Watching God especially formed to spread the words of God in a very interesting manner that excites the youth. In Twitter, youth can follow religious organizations and people who also share Godly messages and ideas. There are different channels for them to learn and be inspired.

These are very effective ways of reaching most youth in this decade. They can still be aware that they have to believe and worship God and His works despite the modernity of the moment. It is a brilliant tactic to meet the younger generation in the place where their interests are more attuned. Social media is the new platform that the kids today are using to explore the world, learn from others, build great relationships and express their selves. This has also given enough space for Christian and other religions to share their faith and beliefs to a broader worldwide audience.

Facebook, TwitterTumblr and other social media sites help youth to appreciate and live by the word of the Lord. Various applications are made to provide for the sacred needs of most of us. We should not judge social media as pure temptation and a work of evil. Technology changes with time and this welcomes a different form of communication in every moment. Even if there are crimes or scandalous events happening due to the misuse of this thing, we should not close our doors and minds to it.

Social media is not just a place to make friends, chat, update your status, display your photos, post videos or advertise products and services. It is also the spot where people from various places with different shapes and status meet and have equal chance to contribute different religious views. This even takes spirituality in a different height. Social media can definitely be the best and latest avenue to strengthen the youth’s faith with God.
