TITLE: YOU MATTER MORE TO GOD THAN YOUR GIFT
AUTHOURED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
2 CORINTHIANS 8:5 “And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God. ”
It’s not about how much I give, it’s about how much love I put into the giving. How happy are you when you hear the word give? True givers give with joy. They are motivated by love. Anybody you love you are willing to give to freely without struggle. A lot of people do not know that happiness is born when you give than when you receive.
Most people give with an attitude that suggest that God is hungry and so much in need of their money. Such people give incomplete tithe to God but Peter said to Ananias, you lied to the Holy Ghost. Don’t think you are deceiving pastor when you give just anything you feel like as your tithe. Something dies in the life of anyone who denies God of what belongs to Him.
If you have to give, give well. To give well is to give cheerfully. Don’t give to God frowning or complaining. All you know is God give me but you never think of what you can give to God. It is you that God is interested in more than what you are giving. If you don’t love God, your giving makes no sense. God will not honour your giving if it does not come from a pure heart and if the money or material thing you are giving was gotten through an illegal means.
Give yourself to God first, then your giving will be born out of a pure heart filled with love for God and the things that concerns Him.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
I REPENT OF ANY WRONG ATTITUDE I HAVE EVER DISPLAYED IN MY GIVING. FATHER, ACCEPT ME AND MY GIFT.
WORDS ON MARBLE
IF YOU STILL DO CALCULATION WITH GOD BEFORE GIVING, YOU HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO IN PROSPERITY…CHARLES CHUKWUEMEZIE
