2 Corinthians 9:6-15
Louis Tamburro
The heart of the giver, the attitude of the giver, is more important than the amount of the giving. Like I said a few weeks ago, if a pastor talking about money is an issue for you, then give somewhere else. I say that not to give Christians an out on giving to the church. I say it because I want you to know we care more about the treasure in your heart than the treasure in your pockets. We care more about you treasuring Jesus in your heart and becoming more generous like Jesus, instead of becoming more greedy like our culture. So if this is that much of an issue for you, give somewhere else.
But if Jesus is your greatest treasure, then let him work on your heart. Let him work on your heart, on your attitude towards giving, especially your giving to the church. Look, if you treasure your family, you’ll make sacrifices for your family. If you treasure your family, you’ll give up your time, talents, and treasures for your family. It’s because you’ll make sacrifices for the things you treasure most in life, and since Jesus sacrificed his life for you, what’s that say about how he views you? Since Jesus lived, died, and rose again for you, what’s that say about how he views you? It means he treasures you. Jesus was willing to sacrifice his life for you, because he treasures you. The question is do you treasure him?. Do you treasure him, and will you give up your treasures for him?. Will you give him your heart, and become a cheerful giver?
