The Giver

Two recent lessons about giving:

1. We enjoy Gods gifts more when we enjoy Him (the giver)  most.

Found that when my heart began the day rejoicing in God, moments around me throughout the day seemed so much more beautiful and enjoyable. Eating at a cafe with mum and sis outside in the freezing cold and rain, flavours, a busker making music, the sun, gloves…
2. We can give nothing to God that was not already his…even our life, even our life belongs to God.
“David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly, saying, “Praise be to you, Lord, the God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name. 
“But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand. We are foreigners and strangers in your sight, as were all our ancestors. Our days on earth are like a shadow, without hope. Lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you. (‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭29‬:‭10-16‬ NIV)
