The Privilege of Giving

How do we view tithes and offerings? As something to avoid? As something to grudgingly give because it is asked of us? These believers in Corinth begged for the privilege of giving, even when they had little. Why? Because their hearts were full of God. They knew that everything they had belonged to Him and their hearts overflowed with compassion, their eyes were focused on others rather than on themselves. God’s Love flowed through them giving them a genuine desire to help. Do we see our offerings doing that, helping the saints, or just something we do because God asks it of us? We have been given the privilege of helping in God’s work by helping those doing His work. Set your heart on others, not self, and find the joy of serving through giving.
