Giving is About Our Hearts

Giving is about our hearts. Jesus talked more about money and possessions than anything else. He understood the pressures and anxieties we all face. He also knew the pull of the world to make money our ultimate goal. And he wants more for us than that. Jesus wants to train each of us to use the money he’s given us in a way that honors him, loves people, and sets our hearts free. Giving is about more than money; it’s about our hearts.”

—John Rinehart in “10 Convictions About Giving,”

My prayer this week: Lord, set me free to give! Help me see beyond the numbers in my bank account to the obedience involved in giving as you’ve enabled … to experience the blessings you have promised. May I live in the freedom of Luke 6:38, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
