Giving (4)

There are a couple more important things to remember about giving. First, giving to God is a beautiful way to worship Him. Giving was a part of the worship experience in the early church. In our Bible reading for today, the believers were happy to give to God and share with each other! In 1 Corinthians 16:2, Paul told the Christians in Corinth, “On the first day of every week, each of you should take some of your money and put it in a special place.”
Second, giving to God shows your love to Him. Everything we do as Christians is motivated by love for God and for others. 1 John 3:18 says, “My children, our love should not be only words and talk. No, our love must be real. We must show our love by the things we do.” God has already shown the full extent of His love. Giving back to God is a marvelous way to show our love for Him in return.
Worship God by giving to Him and others. And remember that giving to God shows how much we love Him.
