The Reward for Almsgiving

Clearly, the Israelites had a view of giving that has been lost to today’s Christians. This attitude is most clearly explained in Christ’s words in the sermon on the mount: “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matthew 7:19-21, NIV) The reward for giving to the poor, according to Scripture, is very real: you lay up treasure in Heaven where the record of your actions is preserved until the day Yahushua returns and rewards the faithful.

This was not a new concept. Clear back during the Wilderness Wandering, Yahuwah commanded:

At the end of every three years, bring all the tithes of that year’s produce and store it in your towns, so that the Levites (who have no allotment or inheritance of their own) and the foreigners, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that Yahuwah your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. (Deuteronomy 14:28 & 29, NIV)

This is why Scripture says to give: so Yahuwah may bless you in everything you do.
