God looks at our finances differently. First, He knows that our giving is a measure of something far more important: The depth of our commitment to Jesus Christ. And it isn’t just a question of how much we give, but what our attitude is as we give. Do we give reluctantly or under compulsion (perhaps to impress other people)? If so, it strongly suggests that we love ourselves more than we love Christ. Don’t let this be true of you.
But God also is able to take what we give and use it in ways we could never imagine.
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly our under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
