What does it mean to be a cheerful giver? Have you had a hard time sharing something you really love? We understand that sometimes it is very difficult to give to others. Think of a time when you didn’t want to part with your favorite shoe even though it was too tight for you. You couldn’t think of someone else wearing it! God wants us to have cheerful hearts when we give to people. By giving we tend to inch closer to Christ. Giving is also a blessing to the giver and to God. Giving is an act of worship and we must do it cheerfully.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7 NIV
