Giving Must Cost You Something

I will not offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God of that which costs me nothing. ó2 Samuel 24:24

I believe that in Godís economy, nothing cheap is worth having. God gave His only Son to free us, and while we can never equal that sacrifice, we must give back to Him in a way that means something. King David said he would not give God something that cost him nothing. And I have learned that true giving is not giving unless I can feel it.

Giving away the clothes and household items Iím finished with may be a nice gesture, but it doesnít equal real giving. Real giving occurs when I give somebody something that I want to keep.

The simple truth is this: We must give to be happy, and giving is not true giving if it doesnít cost us something.

Prayer Starter: God, I want my giving to be meaningful. Tell me what and when You want me to give to help or just bless someone else. I want to give to others like You have given Your love to me.
