God loves a cheerful giver

God is working in us to conform our character and will to be like his own. God is a giver. God finds delight in generously blessing us. Now he asks us to do the same. Giving is not some arbitrary task given us to support our churches and ministries; no, giving is part of our character transformation to become more like God. It may be one of the truest ways we have placed our allegiance, dependence, and priorities in the gracious work of God.

Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
— 2 Corinthians 9:7

Dear Lord forgive us for the times we have been selfish with the abundance you have shared with us. Make us a conduit of blessings. I know that all we have is yours. Please help us use it as you would. In Jesus' name. Amen.
