Make Giving a Living

by Robert Rizzo | Twitter, Facebook,

We need to remember that when we give to the poor we give to God. Cornelius’ occupation was leading men in the Roman army but his passion was prayer and giving to the poor. He did what he could with what he had and God blessed him in a way he could have never anticipated. By Jewish law, Peter shouldn’t have even entered Cornelius’ house. But God wanted to poor out his goodness on Cornelius. And not only Cornelius but his whole household.

So keep doing good, because at the right time you will reap a harvest if you don’t give up.
Don’t ever lose your hope. Because if you lose your hope, you lose your faith. Never give up.

Acts 10 NLT – Cornelius Calls for Peter In Caesarea – Bible Gateway

Cornelius Calls for Peter
1 In Caesarea there lived a Roman army officer[a] named Cornelius, who was a captain of the Italian Regiment. 2 He was a devout, God-fearing man, as was everyone in his household. He gave generously to the poor and prayed regularly to God. 3 One afternoon about three o’clock, he had a vision in which he saw an angel of God coming toward him. “Cornelius!” the angel said.

4 Cornelius stared at him in terror. “What is it, sir?” he asked the angel.

And the angel replied, Your prayers and gifts to the poor have been received by God as an offering! 5 Now send some men to Joppa, and summon a man named Simon Peter. 6 He is staying with Simon, a tanner who lives near the seashore.”
