The scripture has given us guidelines for giving according to G.o.d's view and his ways. For you to be a generous and faithful giver that will be accepted and rewarded by G.o.d, you need to follow these principles of giving which are:

Give with love.

Let your giving be motivated by love. How much you love someone will determine how much you can give to that person. Giving is the expression of your love for G.o.d and His people. To prove that you love G.o.d you must give to Him. Any giving done without love is a waste. Apostle Paul said,

"If I give away all I have, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing." - I Cor.13:3

Give your best to G.o.d.

Never give G.o.d what does not cost you anything. The best of your harvest should be given to G.o.d. You don't give G.o.d leftovers or remnants – things which you yourself will not appreciate or value if someone else gives them to you. How much you love and reverence G.o.d will determine how best you can give to Him. Abel gave G.o.d his best offering and it was accepted.

"And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offerings." - Gen 4:4

Give as G.o.d blesses you.

Always give as G.o.d blesses you, because G.o.d will continue to bless you more in order to be able to give more. You will become unfaithful if G.o.d bless you so much and you are giving Him very little from what He gave to you. Solomon gave G.o.d his best as G.o.d blesses him.

"Solomon offered as peace offerings to the Lord twenty-two thousand oxen and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep." - I Kings 8:63

Avoid ostentation; that is show off.

Unquestionably we are to do good, but good that is done ostentatiously destroys itself in the doing. Kind acts are fragile and must be handled carefully if they are not to become unkind and actually harm the one for whom they are rendered to. You have to learn how to give without being proud or arrogant.

Give cheerfully.

Let every of your giving be done cheerfully. You have to give with joy in your heart because G.o.d loves a cheerful giver.

"So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudging or of necessity; for G.o.d loves a cheerful giver." - II Cor.9:7

Give willingly.

Giving should be done willingly. Any giving done not willingly will not be accepted and rewarded by G.o.d. Giving is not by force but by choice.

"For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have." - II Cor.8:12

Give regularly.

Giving should be done regularly, it is not what you do on a seasonal basis or at any time you want. It should be part of you and should be cultivated as your habit.

"Do not withhold good from those to who it is due when it is your power to do it.
