Giving shows he is Lord of our Lives!
First and foremost, God wants us to give because it shows that we recognize he is truly the lord of our lives. " Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17 NIV"
Everything we own and everything we have comes from God. So when we give, we simply offer him a small portion of the abundance he has already given to us.
Giving is an expression of our thankfulness and praise to God. It comes from a heart of worship that recognizes everything we have and give already belongs to the Lord.
God instructed Old Testament believers to give a tithe, or a tenth because this ten percent represented the first, most important portion of all they had. The New Testament does not suggest a certain percentage for giving, but simply says for each to give "keeping with his income"
When we give freely to God, we receive freely from God.
Prayer For A Cheerful Giving Heart
Lord I thank You for what you have given me - so many blessings that I cannot begin to count them - they are without number. Lord I pray that you would develop in me a giving heart that glorifies You - a cheerful heart that desires to give back to You a small measure of the over-abundance that You have poured into my lap. In Jesus name I pray, Amen
