The Power of Partnership
“A man’s gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men.”
New King James Version
Giving is a powerful force. It makes a place for us among the great (Prov. 18:16) and can change the direction of our lives (Prov. 21:14 and Gen. 26:12). Partnership is a special form of giving.
The Hebrew word that was translated “gift” in Proverbs 18:16, 19:6, and 21:14 literally means “present.” These scriptures are not talking about an anointing or having favour, but about a present that one person gives to another. Proverbs 19:6 makes it clear that “every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts,” and in 21:14, we read that “a gift in secret pacifieth anger: and a reward in the bosom strong wrath.”
The New International Version translates Proverbs 18:16 this way: “A gift opens the way for the giver and ushers him into the presence of the great.” I believe these scriptures describe a very important aspect of what happens when you enter into partnership with a ministry.
You’ve heard it before: there is strength in numbers. But implicit in that statement is that these numbers work together for mutual advantage. At minimum, there has to be agreement among them; otherwise, they cannot walk together (Amos 3:3). Ideally, an amiable relationship would make their strength even greater. The stronger the relationship, the greater the things they can accomplish together.
