6. Giving originates in the soul. First there is soul activity,
then the overt act of giving.
7. Giving reflects grace and love in the soul. Giving in grace
does not make an issue of the amount of the gift.
8. Giving from an emotional revolt of the soul reduces it to a
bribe for love or good behavior and results in such phrases
as, "After all I've done for you!" " I've given enough money
to have some say around here!" That is giving with strings.
There is no place in the function of the royal priesthood for
this type of giving.
" Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may
obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
Dear Heavenly Father, what a joy it is to begin the day talking with
Thee, opening heart and mind to Thee. Keep me in the center of Thy will.
In Christ name pray
