A Daily Devotion for Thursday, March 31


2 Corinthians 9:7


Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

“What he has decided in his heart to give…”. This makes me think about tithing, and the need for prayerful consideration of what our gifts to the church should be. I am including myself in this statement. The interesting word to me is “cheerful.” If I don’t agree with decisions made in the (larger) church, should this affect my giving? Am I cheerfully giving for Christian works in my community and around the world, or reluctantly giving to an organization I may have issues with? Prayer is the only way for me to figure this out; I need God’s help.

Lord above, help me to figure out where and how to help your church. I would like to be a more cheerful giver. Amen
