Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give according to what you have, not what you don’t have. 2 Corinthians 8:12 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
We are bombarded with feel good stories on the TV news of giving to help the poor, giving to help those with sicknesses and disease.
BUT, what is at the heart of the giver?
Do they genuinely give because of their concern or do they give to feel good and to be prideful on social media look at me, look at me. Or to brag to friends, family and co-workers? Do they participate to be a part of the crowd or because they are peer pressured to give?
Yes the Lord loves a cheerful giver BUT, we must first take it to Him in prayer where to give, how much to give and when to give. Then, we will be giving to please the Lord which is the only reason any Christian should give.
Give joyfully and thankfully to the Lord in abundance as a sacrifice of love and appreciation as He has given in abundance sometimes with great cost (like the cross) to you.
Why do you give?
Just as I have one hand open to receive my Beloved Jehovahs blessings, my other hand is open to sharing them with those in need. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God supplies) for blessing me with numerous opportunities to share with those in need. I praise You in the name of He who gave His blood for my salvation Jesus Christ. Amen
May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah
