So I believe that Jesus set an example of giving for His disciples and therefore can command us to give and it shall be given unto us because He gave.
Absolutely right. And I agree with all of your post.
But I assume you would agree that nothing Jesus ever said (taught) or did justifies in any way taking something by force from one person in order to "give" something to another?
King David said I will not give anything to God that did cost me nothing. If I take money from one person, then I am giving nothing because it is not my money I am giving.

Absolutely. Hesus wasn’t about forcing people to do anything.
