WAYS TO GIVE.
There are countless ways to give.
- Giving out of our own free will: God looks for, and delights in, our freewill offerings.
This is more appreciated by God than what we forcefully give or what we give just to show off. The Creator is only interested in offerings that are presented to him from liberal hearts.
He is not interested in receiving anything that comes from a grudging heart!
The scripture stated,
“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:6-8 NKJV).
GIVING SACRIFICIALLY: Sacrificial giving is the act of strategically giving something that is precious and costly or something one
barely can afford as an act of worship and devotion to God with an express purpose of getting an extraordinary breakthrough. It is a well-considered, but painful giving.
Sacrificial giving often requires that we give up something we love dearly and cherish as a demonstration that we are more committed to God and His purposes than to things. Sometimes God may ask you to give up your dreams for His.
Sacrificial giving involves giving your time, talent, life and treasure.
Willingly I will sacrifice to You; I will give thanks to Your name, O LORD, for it is good. For He has delivered me from all trouble, And my eye has looked with satisfaction upon my enemies. Psalm 54:6-7
GIVING TO GLORIFY GOD: Giving in a right spirit is an act of worship. It is rendering Him a tribute of praise. It is saying. “You gave me everything and here is a small expression of my gratitude and praise for all your good gifts. It’s only a token, a sample of what I really feel, but you know the heart that lies behind it. As David sang: “What shall I render to the Lord for all his benefits towards me?” (Psalms 116:12).
