Give Cheerfully

2 Corinthians 9:7-8 NIV, “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”

 

God loves a cheerful giver. Rather we are giving our money, our time, or our other resources, He is concerned with our attitude and our motives when we give. The purpose of our giving is to bring God glory. A tiny gift given out of love and humility, will far outweigh a large gift given grudgingly or with pride. The Lord can see our hearts. He knows exactly why we do what we do. We may be able to fool people, but we can’t fool Him.

Allowing ourselves to be lead by the Holy Spirit in our giving will ensure that we are obeying God as we give. Realizing that all we have is because of His goodness will keep us humble. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down to us from God our Father (James 1:17). Thank you Father for supplying our needs and giving us opportunities to give.
