Jun 10, 2010 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with every fiber of your being:

“Bring the grain offering made of these things to the LORD; present it to the priest, who shall take it to the altar.”
(Leviticus 2:8)

Never let me forget, Jesus:

I don’t give my tithes and offerings to the

poor
priest
pastor
church
missions
building fund
youth ministry
inner city project

I give every last cent of my tithes and offerings

to You.

Other people may handle it

or mishandle it.

They are most definitely accountable to You for how they spend it.

But I’m not giving what I have worked so hard to earn to

jump through their hoops
meet their expectations
impress any of them.

My tithes and offerings belong to You.

So please know my heart, the next time I

drop my gift in the offering plate
click the online donation button 
mail in my check

I’m whispering this prayer:

“To You, Jesus…

only to You.”

One response so far.

  1. Lady B. Says:

    God loves a cheerful giver because He Himself is one. He
    wants the bounty that He pours out on His children to overflow towards others. Sadly, many people treat their wealth more like a personal reservoir than a divine channel.

    The reservoir mentality treats wealth as a means to provide solely for one’s own family, goals, and desires; money for god’s work is given relutantly. The stingy person figures that as long as he offers something, it
    shouldn’t matter that he’d rather not. However, attitude is
    vital. To God, the state of a believer’s heart is more important than his or her actions (Hos.6:6). Lukewarm
    giving is a signal that we aren’t fully engaged in seeing the Lord’s work done We’d rather ensure our own security.

    What surprises the tightfisted believer is that God does not fill a reservoir. Even people who appear affluent never feel that they have enough. True contentment comes with accepting that our wealth however limited belongs to the Lord and is sufficient for our needs. As soon as we understand that, our reservoir bursts its banks to become
    part of God’s divine channel. As He pours in, we cheerfully
    pour out with full confidence that He will provide for both our needs and our gifts.

    The Lord’s ultimate plan does not include making all his children properous. His purpose is to make every one of
    us generous with all that we have wealth, compassion, knowledge, ect. Cheerful giving is courageous giving because we have to trust that the Lord will provide.You readers out there I would like to know what you think?
