Deut. 8:18 NIV
“The Lord your God gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms His covenant.”
3 John 2. NKJV
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
I have been young and now I am old; yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging for bread.
Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant
The blessings of the Lord, it maketh rich, and it addeth no sorrow with it.
The above scriptures are factual evidence of God’s teachings on giving and the power of giving. They reveal that God takes pleasure in our prosperity. One reason is for us to be able to provide for others. God apparently wants his children to be prosperous. However, this can only be achieved when we obey his commandments on giving. All the successful people recorded in the bible such as David, Solomon, Abraham and Joseph were all givers. BHB is a platform for believers to come together and fulfil this mandate.
2 Corinthians 9:8 says “And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.
