Good morning.


When it comes to giving generously, (as with the gift of giving) we do so cheerfully.


We had a gentleman in GraceCov that when it came time for the tithes and offerings would jump up and dance round in front of his seat praising God as he gave. He maintained that it was a display of cheerful giving. While the gift of giving is over and above the tithe, it displays the same attitude.


There are pitfalls to be avoided when it comes to the gift of giving. When giving, we need to beware of attaching conditions to the use of the gift - even if the giving is in response to an appeal. When we provide a gift to meet an individual's need, it is best done through the eldership of your church to avoid soul ties and pride creeping in.


Generosity in giving does not have to be from a place of wealth. Often those who have little, are the most generous givers.


Generosity is not restricted to the area of finances. One may give generously of one's time and talent.


As is the case with all the gifts of the Spirit, we should follow Jehoshaphats advice to the king of Israel, “First seek the counsel of the Lord .” (1 Kings 22:5)


Have a good start to the week.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
