Offering Gifts to God
On that day David gave to Asaph and his fellow Levites this song of thanksgiving to the Lord: Let the whole earth sing to the Lord!
Each day proclaim the good news that he saves.
Publish his glorious deeds among the nations.
Tell everyone about the amazing things he does.
Great is the Lord! He is most worthy of praise!
He is to be feared above all gods.
Honor and majesty surround him; strength and joy fill his dwelling.
Give to the Lord the glory he deserves!
Bring your offering and come into his presence.
Worship the Lord in all his holy splendor.
1 Chronicles 16:7, 20-25, 27, 29 NLT
We express our gratitude to God when we give…
1) Lovingly
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him…Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also to love one another.
1 John 4:9, 11 NIV
2) Sacrificially
We want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches… They gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability.
2 Corinthians 8:1, 3 NIV
3) Willingly and freely
I want it to be a willing gift, not one given grudgingly…You must decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”
2 Corinthians 9:5, 7 NLT
4) Generously
…Be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.
1 Timothy 6:18 NLT
5) Purposefully
So, two things happen as a result of your gifts—those in need are helped, and they overflow with thanks to God.
2 Corinthians 9:12 LB
