Exodus 35:5 Take from among you an offering unto the LORD: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the LORD; gold, and silver, and bronze,

2 Corinthians 9:7 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.

God doesn’t want our money. God doesn’t need our money. He owns it all. God wants our hearts. He confirms our hearts are for Him by asking us to willingly give of our finances to Him.

There are some who say, “I can give God my heart without giving Him my money.” Well, that’s not scriptural. Matthew 6:21 says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” So, we can say we love God and we’ll do anything for Him, but if we’re withholding finances from Him, we’re deceiving ourselves.

God is not asking for much. He’s asking for a dime out of every dollar and if we desire extraordinary abundance in our lives, an offering of at least a penny ($0.11 of every $1.00).

So, let’s consistently give God our hearts based on His goodness towards us by financially giving to Him through our local church.
