Wonderful Combination

There you are to bring everything I command you: your burnt offerings and sacrifices, your tithes and special gifts, and all the choice possessions you have vowed to the Lord. And there rejoice before the Lord your God . . . Deuteronomy 12:11-12

To many this is a strange combination – obeying God’s command to bring him sacrifices and gifts then to rejoice. How often have I looked at my offering as a burden or a payment of dues (kind of)? That which we give to God is meant to remind us of all He has given to us—AND all HE promises to give. My offerings are meant to be a celebration of God’s generosity to all of us. I just need to remember that holding back in my offering is a reflection of my attitude that God has not really done all that much for me. How foolish is that!
