The Topic of Chuck Swindoll Daily Devotional 18th June 2024 is “Giving While You’re Living”.

Scriptures: Genesis 25:5–6

TODAY’S INSIGHT – 18TH JUNE 2024.

Abraham gave everything he owned to his son Isaac. But before he died, he gave gifts to the sons of his concubines and sent them off to a land in the east, away from Isaac. (Genesis 25:5–6)

BEFORE ABRAHAM DIED, he took good care of all his children, establishing each of his sons financially as they left the nest and started families of their own. He had evidently learned from the mistake he’d made with Ishmael and Hagar, whom he had sent away with inadequate provisions.

Many years ago, a wise and godly financial planner convinced me that Cynthia and I should share our inheritances before we die. He liked to quote the old saying, “Do your givin’ while you’re livin’, then you’re knowin’ where it’s goin’!” Why wait until you’re dead before your offspring and others can enjoy what you have earned and saved?

Abraham chose to do his givin’ while he was livin’. While he was alive, he helped his six sons with Keturah get started; he also helped Ishmael with his needs. Given Abraham’s immense wealth, he was still able to leave a vast fortune in the hands of Isaac, who inherited the rest from his father.

I believe that this wise planning was one of the reasons Abraham was able to be at peace in his final days: “Abraham breathed his last and died in a ripe old age, an old man and satisfied with life; and he was gathered to his people” (Genesis 25:8, NASB).

Satisfied translates from the Hebrew word sahbah, which literally means “to be full.” Abraham died with a full smile. Full of years. Full of satisfaction. Full of contentment. When he looked into the eyes of his children and his grandchildren, he could engage them without a guilty conscience. He gave of himself, and he shared his resources.

 

REFLECT

Are you experiencing the joy of releasing your wealth while you’re still alive, as Abraham did? If not, how can you take the first steps to do so?

I am coming to you for the third time, and I will not be a burden to you. I don’t want what you have—I want you. After all, children don’t provide for their parents. Rather, parents provide for their children.

2 CORINTHIANS 12:14
