1 Corinthians 16:1-2 (NET)
With regard to the collection for the saints, please follow the directions that I gave to the churches of Galatia.
On the first day of the week, each of you should set aside some income and save it to the extent that God has blessed you, so that a collection will not have to be made when I come.
Stacy used to be tight-fisted towards her church because she said the church was already very rich. But as she grew in the knowledge of God and love for His kingdom, she realized that she was now willing to give her resources to help promote the work of God. She realized that if everyone was closed fisted like she was, the church wouldn’t have money but be poor and would not be able to execute even the smallest projects.
You cannot say you love someone and not be willing to give to the person you say you love. Those who love God’s kingdom are willing to give for its advancement in this world.
I used to be against church ministers asking people to give their money, but as I grew, I realized that as long as they are not using dishonest methods, it is not out of order to ask believers to give for kingdom projects. Today’s Bible verses make this point.
Go into today remembering that you are a child of God and He wants you to live in abundance. Don’t let the devil hinder you from accessing the blessings that are activated when you give to God’s work in love.
