TOPIC: BE HONEST WITH GOD

Bible Text: God loveth a cheerful giver. – 2 Corinthians 9:7

MESSAGE:
The greatest blessing of giving is not on the financial side of the ledger but on the spiritual side. You receive a sense of being honest with God. You receive a consciousness that you are in partnership with God—that you are doing something constructive—that you are working with Him to reach the world for Jesus Christ.

You are also enabled to hold on to this world’s goods loosely because the eternal values are always in view. How do you give? Is it liberally and cheerfully? Or is it sparingly and grudgingly? If you have been giving God the leftovers of your substance and your life, you have been missing the true joy and blessing of Christian giving and living.

Prayer for the day: Forgive me, almighty God, for so often giving You the leftovers. In my heart I know I can never outgive You.
