How can I become a more cheerful giver?

spiritual battleThe greatest giver this world has ever known was Jesus Christ. Leaving behind the riches and glory of His heavenly kingdom, He came to Earth and willingly gave His life so that we could keep ours. As God predestined His children to be conformed to the likeness of His Son (Romans 8:29), there can be no better way to emulate Jesus Christ than by giving selflessly the way He did. Our Savior Himself told us, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35). Quite simply, then, our greatest motivation for cheerful and generous giving should be that it pleases the Lord and reflects His gift of salvation to us.

The second letter to the Corinthians reveals a number of inspiring truths that should help us become more cheerful givers.

What does the Bible say about euthanasia/assisted suicide? What does the Bible say about euthanasia/assisted suicide? - Euthanasia, sometimes called "mercy killing", can be a difficult issue.

In Remembrance
In Rememberance Of: Deacon Ernest H. Jones | September 14, 1915 - July 20, 1994Deacon Ernest H. Jones
September 14, 1915 - July 20, 1994

Gone from these mundane shores since the summer of 1994 Deacon Ernest H. Jones, “the Deacon’s Deacon”, has been enjoying the promises of Heaven and all eternity. We certainly have missed that resounding deep voice when Deacon Jones frequently led the church in prayer. With such fervor he would bring just a little of Heaven as he talked to God in prayer.

 

Bible Study
A Prophet for our Time: EzekielA Prophet for our Time: Ezekiel - Ezekiel is one of the most fascinating prophets of the Old Testament. One of the captives with King Jehoiachin in the second of three deportations under King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, He mentions Daniel three times, who had been in Babylon nine years before Ezekiel arrived. Ezekiel ministered, as did Jeremiah, to a nation experiencing judgment for their sins. If God spared not Israel, His Chosen, when they sinned, why not America?
