Caption: START FROM WHERE YOU ARE
“And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art…Gen. 13:14
Deuteronomy 16:17 also says “Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee. We all have something to give no matter how small. God; is most of the time less concern with the quantity of what we give but the quality of it. It’s bad to tell people not to give a particular amount in Church.
While it’s good to encourage people to increase their giving attitudes it’s very bad to authoritatively say “we don’t take 5, 10 or 20 naira as offering here oh.” What makes the quality of our offering is the source of it, what we have left and the heart with which we give it. Most of the time, the poor give more than the rich ’cause they give out of the little they have.
Action cue: Start from the little you have and trust God for increase in your giving level. Don’t say it’s not enough.
JESUS IS GOD!
