Giving Is an Act of Worship
A little boy was fidgeting in church one Sunday morning during the pastor’s sermon. Finally, he leaned over to his mother and asked, “Mom, if we give the money now, do you think he’ll let us go?” If this boy expresses our idea of stewardship, we are missing the true meaning, purpose, and joy that are associated with giving. Our giving should express our thankfulness for Who God is and what He does for us. Through our giving, we worship and honor our heavenly Father. We give not because God needs our gifts, but because we have a need to give. God in His sovereignty chooses to bless us as we give (Acts 20:35).
Prayer: Good and gracious heavenly Father, we thank You for all of Your wonderful gifts especially the most indescribable gift, the gift of Your Son. Help us to show our gratitude by granting us loving and giving hearts. May all that we do give You honor and glory. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen
Blessings on your stewardship journey!
