2Kings 12:4 And Jehoash said to the priests, All the money of the dedicated things that is brought into the house of the LORD, even the money of every one that passeth the account, the money that every man is set at, and all the money that cometh into any man’s heart to bring into the house of the LORD,
I love that though under the law there were requirements as to how much a person had to give for certain things in Israel there was also an offering that came from the heart. God moved on people’s hearts and they gave. They gave the money or the amount that came into their heart to bring to the house of the Lord.
I want to give because I want to give. I try to find His leadership in every area of my life including giving. Our God loves a cheerful giver. He doesnâ€™t want offerings that are given out of necessity and grudgingly. He moves on our hearts. He can put in my heart to give as He directs.
There is giving based on responsibility, duty, what we should do but the most beautiful giving is when we do what we know that He wants us to do. We ask the Holy Spirit to direct our hearts and our giving. Then when we give it comes with all the right attitude.
I challenge you to ask God to direct you in your giving. Ask Him to show you what to give. Give as He puts it in your heart.
