— The LOVE FACTOR confuses the not-Christian who equates LOVE WITH APPROVAL. People who are away from a relationship with God cannot grasp that the Lord LOVES those who are unqualified. When we truly understand that God’s LOVE is unconditionally. We then begin to understand about GIVING.
1. LOVE is an attitude; giving is the resulting action.
2. LOVE is the placement of value on other people.
3. Giving is the depriving yourself in order to benefit another.
I love Christmas, and quite frankly, I get excited about reading notes and cards from friends of mine, but I still have enough “little Kid” in me to like to get presents and gifts from other people. However, there is a lot more to Christmas than trees and lights and presents. It is a CELEBRATION OF LOVE, THE LOVE OF GOD. God’s love is perpetuated through our GIVING.
HERE IS THE PRINCIPLE: WHEN YOU LET GO OF WHAT IS IN YOUR HAND, GOD WILL LET GO OF WHAT IS IN HIS HAND FOR YOU. And guess what, GOD’S HAND IS MUCH BIGGER THAN OURS. BE BLESSED!
