Luke 12:31, 34, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need…Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of our heart will also be.”
We live in a world where we are often learning how to take care of number one – us. It’s all about us. We can have it our way. We have rights. As we grow in our relationship with God we begin to realize it’s not about us, life is about Him; we must become less and He must become more.
The focus of our life becomes seeking Him, His plan and purpose for our lives above all else. This means our investing strategies change. We do invest in us but by investing in Him and what he is investing in. We learn our finances reveal a lot about us: “wherever our treasure is, there the desires of our heart will also be.”
We learn to be a Christ follower is also to be a giver. For God so loved the world He gave... We learn to be a giver of our time, abilities and even our finances. God gives us direction throughout the Bible on these giving areas. It’s His expectation of us as we grow. What will we learn to give this year that we may not have given before?
Being a giver comes from a thankful, loving relationship!
