GIF Sacrificial Giving
“He said, ‘Truly I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all of them; . . . she out of her poverty put in all that she had to live on’ ”
by Larry Burkett
Sacrificial giving with a right attitude is possible only for Christians submitted to God. In the United States, giving sacrificially is almost unknown. Worldly attitudes have clouded our thinking and dulled our sensitivity to others.
God will not allow His work to tarry for lack of funds. He will redistribute the necessary funds to Christians who have the correct attitudes–primarily those who are seeking His will and are willing to sacrifice their luxuries for the needs of others.
The use of our money is a very objective measure of our commitment to Jesus Christ and to His work. Christians who bypass God’s work because they refuse to experience even a slight discomfort have missed the mark.
Sacrificial giving is possible for those who have a little as well as those who have much. All Christians can give sacrificially.
Begin to sacrifice a small portion from your wants or desires for the needs of others. Ask God to lay their needs on your heart and then put your commitment to sacrificial giving into action.
