God wants us to give, but there are some guidelines.
Day 3: Matthew 6:2 (GNB)
“So when you give something to a needy person, do not make a big show of it as the hypocrites do in the houses of worship and on the streets. They do it so that people will praise them. I assure you, they have already been paid in full.”
God wants us to give, but for the right reasons.
Give because you want to help someone else in need.
Give because the Holy Spirit impressed you to.
Give because you love Jesus and want to be like Him.
Give because God has blessed you.
But don’t give to gain.
Don’t give to get praise.
Don’t give to bolster your ego.
Don’t give to boost your reputation.
Where possible give privately. Where possible, give quietly. I can assure you that the One who matters, sees.
