GIVING TO GOD PDF Print

What do you give to God?

It s much different today than in the time of Jesus and centuries before.  Then, you would bring an animal you raised, crops you grew by the sweat of your brow or fruit that you would have nurtured through the seasons.  There was a real earthy connection with all that was offered! ... a true sense of giving of yourself.

Do you feel that connection through the giving of your gifts today?  It’s much different, isn’t it?

I am well aware that each of us invest ourselves in our occupations, and through those jobs we give.  But perhaps it seems more disconnected when we simply drop a gift in the offering plate or the pastor s pocket.

Let me just share that it doesn’t have to.  May I suggest a few ways for you to be somewhat more in touch with your gift and its destinations.

First, pray, seriously pray, in regard to the amount of your gift.  It may change from time to time!  Pray for how you can give sacrificially of any aspect of your life.

Second, earnestly pray for the work that your gift is going to ... your church, missions, evangelistic outreaches, etc.  Your prayers can cause the funds to go farther than we ever imagined.

Finally, pray for the souls touched and changed directly and indirectly through your personal gift.

These are just a few thoughts of how one can feel connected to the gifts given freely to God’s work.  I would love to hear your thoughts on the matter.

May you be blessed as you faithfully serve our King!

– Dale
