Give the Things of God

By | Eyesalve

And when the time was that Elkanah offered, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions: 5But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb.” I Samuel 1:4-5


Several other versions use the words double portion instead of worthy portion. Elkanah tried to satisfy his wife Hannah by giving her a double portion. But that didn’t satisfy her. So often men try to satisfy the needs that some people have by giving them a double portion of this world’s goods. But it never satisfies them because what they really need and want, only the Lord can give. Let us be givers of the things of God.

Eyesalve: Don’t Refuse the Living Water

By | Eyesalve

The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, Give, give. There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough: 16The grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, It is enough.” Proverbs 30:15-16


In spite that it is harder than ever to find a good church these days, there are just some Christians who will never be filled or satisfied. They jump from church to church or from this doctrine to that doctrine, and yet never find what they are looking for. More than likely, their problem is that they refuse the living water of God to satisfy them. They look for other people and things to satisfy, but they never look for God.
