Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give,not reluctantly or under compulsion,for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7 NIV
God is a giver. So much of a giver that he gave his only begotten son to die for us. The greatest gift of all. As God gives, we are called to give also.
When we give, we should never do it because we think we have to. We do it because we want to. We do it for he has called us to cheerfully give and not do it begrudgingly.
When we give, we should not be boastful and gloat. We should do it with a kind heart. As followers of Christ, we want to live our life: being faithful, following Jesus and strive to be like Jesus.
Jesus was a big giver. He gave his life. Our reward for following him is salvation. Our goal is to one day be like him.
But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward
