*Narrates 40 year financial growth of the Liberation Commission through consistent covenant practice/giving.
*Give according to your level but let it be honourable and watch your level rise from glory to glory.
Not every seed sown is acceptable to God. At the beginning He had respect for the Sacrifice of Abel but had no respect for that of Cain. He is not a beggar so He has a choice what to accept and what not to accept. What is it that makes our offering acceptable to God? It has to acceptable before it becomes rewardable.
Your seed must become honourable before it becomes acceptable. What makes honourable is not the volume but the cost to you. He said “I won’t offer to the Lord that which cost me nothing”. God will not respect your leftover seed. No. He is not a beggar, He doesn’t need your help. Neither does He need my help. Your seed must be honourable before returns are guaranteed. My God has a choice. “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof”. “Of Him have we all received” so there’s nothing we have that is not given to us by Him”. So He doesn’t need it.
Now watch, there’s a kind of seed you will give you your parents that will provoke a curse. You drove in a convoy, you got to your home and you say “hello mum, I just love you, here is 10 naira to keep you going for the month”. If she doesn’t tear it in your presence, as soon as you turn your back she will tear it. “If I will never eat till I die forget”.
Why? It is because you have left that level. Therefore as God has blessed everyone even so let Him give. So you give according to the blessing of the Lord upon your life. He knows what blessings He has put upon your life so you can’t pretend.
If I give you 5 naira as a seed in your life now it will affect your respect for me. Why? You believe I’m beyond that. God knows the level of blessings in your life, stop playing games all around. I’ve never lacked returns on my seed sir. Never. Most of the time our seeds are not acceptable, so the returns are not in view. People just take God for granted that’s why they’re grounded. They see God as a myth, not as a person. Until our seed is acceptable no returns should be expected.
I know God will not take 20,000 from me for an offering but He will gladly take 2 Naira from me those days. Let’s enhance our quality of our Covenant walk with God.

Please learn to sow honourable seeds according to the level of blessings upon your life. Including giving to the needy. Give to the level that you’re in.
Honour thy Lord with thy substance, not thy leftovers.
You can preach it, it won’t make a difference. You have to do it to experience it.
