When you hear a preacher talking about giving, what is your reaction?
As a believer do you regard giving as an obligation or an opportunity?
What would you say if I told that God does not want your giving if it is out of compulsion or obligation?
Contrary to what you might think, God does not need our giving, rather it is us that need to give to God. God has promised blessings to those that give willingly. If you don't want God's blessing, then God says in His Word that you should not give.
Listen to this podcast and learn what it means to give willingly as Paul uses Jesus Christ as the supreme example of grace giving.
