Why you can’t give a gift to missionaries

I was giving online to a missionary when a strange thought occurred to me: I’m not really giving anything.

A gift implies we get nothing in return. But Scripture makes it clear that when we give to God’s work or God’s people the Lord notices and the giver “will certainly not lose their reward.” (Matthew 10:42)

Instead of giving to missions we’re actually investing. And it’s an investment in a sure thing. It has God’s guarantee of return.

The best financial investing advice ever given came from Jesus Himself. He didn’t suggest investing in real estate or stocks, bonds or treasury notes. He said store your treasure in heaven. Investing in missions is one way to store “treasure in heaven” where it is safe from theft, economic downturn or loss.

It’s a guaranteed safe investment that’s good for eternity. What other investment can make that promise?
