Billions and billions of years ago God knew that, because of the
angelic conflict, the function of giving would be attacked both
with in the local church and in the secular world. Many people
give because they think that God is a "genie" who will give them
what they want because they "ante in" a certain amount in the
collection plate. Many people give to assuage a guilt complex.
They have become financially successful, perhaps by some
unethical business practices. Giving some portion of this money
to charity and the underprivileged eases the conscience! There is often
a very fine line between true Biblical giving and giving with false
"If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it."
Lord, thank You for the availability of Your Spirit to sustain Your children.
In Christ name I pray
