"Each one of you should give just as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, because God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7)
Money is an awkward conversation to have at church. We expect the electric bill to be paid, craft supplies bought for the kids, and coffee served without often putting much thought into how it’s all paid for. We all have our own budgets to worry about, but giving to God is an honor and a privilege when we have the right attitude.
Have you ever found the perfect gift for someone? Maybe a birthday or Christmas present that your friend or loved one just had to have. Do you remember being so excited to give it to them—just because you knew how happy it would make them? God wants us to give to him with the same kind of joy and fulfillment.
As the apostle Paul says, we shouldn’t be giving because we feel like we have to or expecting something in return—what joy is there in that? A heartless gift means nothing. Your offerings, financially or otherwise, should always begin in your heart. It’s a privilege to be a part of what God is doing and it’s exciting to know that some sacrifice on our part can render huge results for the kingdom of God.
