The Cycle of Money

The Cycle of Money 

There is a cycle to money and its use. Money can be similarly compared to the cycle of water in nature. Did you know that money is only profitable when it is used? If we are to live life abundantly as Christians, we must follow the scriptural principle of giving. Our measure of giving determines the measure of how we will receive.


Money can only affect our world around us for the gospel if it is put into circulation. The Dead Sea is dead because it only takes in and gives nothing out. The law of living is giving. If money is to be useful, it must be used. When increase comes our way, we should use it, not only for our needs, but also for the good of others. Treasures on earth can become paths to building heavenly treasures if they are used and distributed for the glory of God. Jesus understood clearly that, in the consumer culture of this world, we live in a constant battleground for our affections, our heart and our soul.


Luke 6:38 states, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” (KJV) The more you give, the more He gives back to you. He gives back to the giver. Giving is for your sake, because God gives to givers.


Does the receiver benefit? Yes, in the sense that needs are met. But it is the giver who benefits the most. In II Corinthians 9:6-15, Paul gives clear instructions to the church concerning giving. Verse 7 notes that God will love the giver in a special way. Verse 8 says God will provide for him. Verses 9-11 speak of his resources being multiplied and enriched. God sees to it that givers are receivers. They obtain money, prosperity, blessing and eternal rewards. And they grow in faith.
