We give because Jesus gave His life for mankind. Look to the wise men who gave gifts to Jesus and worshipped Him.
Giving is not only God driven but also very good for our soul and the lives that benefit because of it.
John 10:27,28 (KJV)
27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
John 14:27 (KJV)
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Lord, thank You for giving Your life for us. What You've done for mankind is the greatest act of kindness that anyone has ever made. I cherish every moment, just thinking of what you've done. What You've done has opened the doors for salvation, and for that I give You praise. My heart is Yours, Jesus. I come willing to Your feet, that You may continue to wash me of my sins each day. You are my King and I worship You. You give me the desires to love one another and to give what I have to those less fortunate. I may not be rich but I still find ways to have money after giving to those in need. Yes, Lord, You make this all possible and make a way so that people are blessed. I am so grateful to be given opportunities to serve You and to bring peace to others. Each time I go out of my comfort zone and rely on You fully to lead the way, things go so well. Even when I open my mouth, it is filled. I don't have to rely on my own self, for You are there to help me. I pray that You will continue to use me to bless other people. Help me to always have a giving heart. And please instill this desire in the hearts of many. I pray that Your love will go forth and touch many souls. I trust in You Lord. I love You. Amen.
