HEBREWS 11:4 (quickview) 

By faith Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. By faith he was commended as a righteous man, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith he still speaks, even though he is dead.

GENESIS 4:3-5 (quickview) 

In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the LORD.

But Abel brought fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The LORD looked with favor on Abel and his offering,

but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.

PROVERBS 3:9-10 (quickview) 

Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops;

then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.

2 CORINTHIANS 8:6-7 (quickview) 

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.

Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

LUKE 6:38 (quickview) 

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

2. ENOCH

Enoch has set the trend for us to follow in walking with God and by faith living a life that is pleasing to God . Enoch was taken by God without seeing death . Before he was taken away he had the testimony that he pleased God. We must please God in order to be taken up when Jesus returns .We please God by our faith . We must come to God with the complete assurance that He will reward us when we seek Him diligently.

HEBREWS 11:5-6 (quickview) 

By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

GENESIS 5:24 (quickview) 

Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.

1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17 (quickview) 

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
