Bible Study Guides: “God loves a cheerful giver”
According to the Bible, “God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:6-11).What I learn from life, those who work hardest won’t necessarily secure what they want. Those who are much willing to give and help the weak are those who are blessed. Self-discipline and hard-working are important, whereas self-seeking is reprehensible in God’s eyes. It’s probably because self-seeking has more to do with selfishness and apathy.
In Revelation 20:11–15, it mentions that everyone will be judged “according to what they had done as recorded in the books.” “God will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked” and it’s the timing “to judge every deed” of every individual (Ecclesiastes 3:17). “Judge nothing before the appointed time” and God will “bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart” and “Everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken”( 1 Corinthians 4:5, Matthew 12:36).
The Bible say, “We must help the weak. It is more blessed to give than to receive” In the Bible, the impoverished beggar Lazarus ended up in heaven. In a sense, the poverty which Lazarus suffers is obviously not a sign of God’s punishment or sinfulness. The rich man ended up in hell because of his hard-heartedness and apathy toward the suffering and the disadvantaged. According to the Bible, “blessed is the one who is kind to the needy” (Proverbs 14:17).
The Bible says, “Many are called, but few are chosen”( Matthew 22:14). (Acts 20:35). Do not “become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9).
 The Bible say, “But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever” (1 Timothy 5:8).
 The Bible says, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
