In a world of consumers, we’re called to contribute. In a world of takers, we’re called to be givers. Jesus came to give and His followers must give if we want to be like Him. It’s in giving that we gain the greater blessing. Jesus cares about our giving and He sees what we give; however, He is more concerned with how we give than with how much we give. Jesus always cares most about the heart, and giving allows Him to cultivate a generous heart within us. When we give sacrificially and trust God’s provision, it’s then we learn that we can’t ever out-give Him. He gave everything for us and continues to give everything to us. Are you a generous giver?
