Oh Lord, I pray that You will move in each one of our lives. Help us to see the need to give unto others, even our church, different ministries, and of course, the needy. So often are we watching our bank accounts each weekend that we are at church and let the offering basket go on by without giving anything. Many places are now putting out different ways to give on the big screen and we also disregard that. I know that I was one of these people for some time until You pricked my heart to start giving. Thank You for letting me know how important it is to go to a place of worship and to help furnish the costs also. I love what the church is doing and I am grateful to have a hand in it. Lord, I know that different Christian ministries are also needing our help. I watch YouTube ministries all the time and to get these missionaries in all the world, helping the poor, they need money and help. Sponsoring children is also something I love to do and hope that You put this desire in other people’s hearts also. God, one thing that is severely lacking in this world is a heart to give to the poor and the homeless. So often do people let them leave a supermarket without getting everything they need or drive right past a homeless person with a sign. These people need a giving heart to survive. So may Christians come unto You fully, that they may learn what it means to be a cheerful giver. We may not be rich, but what we do give is from the heart. You know that well. I love You, Lord. I trust in You. Amen.
2 Corinthians 9:8-10 (KJV)
8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.
10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)
A cheerful giver is expected out of every faithful Christian. This is doing God’s will unto others as it is in heaven.
