2 Corinthians 9:7 (New King James Version)

7] So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

The Art Of Giving

Far more important than the amount we give is the attitude with which we give it. In reality, God does not need our money. But He welcomes our worship and He loves to love us. Our gifts to Him are but a reflection of our love and commitment to Him. Writing a check to the church, dropping your offering in the plate, giving to a special project. Are these pleasant experiences for you? Do you find spiritual satisfaction and joy in giving?

Paul did not want the Corinthians to miss out on the powerful, overwhelmingly fulfilling experience of generous and cheerful giving. let your heart smile as the offering plate is passed. Rejoice in God's provision that allows you to participate in such a simple, yet profound, act of worship, placing a gift in the offering.

FOR TODAY: Smile, at least inwardly, when you next place a gift in the offering.
