Remember, when you give to your church you are not paying someone to do your work. Your minister is not like a lawn service or Cleaners that you hire to do chores that you don’t want to do or do not have the time to do.
Of course, your pastor should be working, but he’s not working for you, he is working on you because that is what Jesus has called him to do.
Remember, God has a reason for you being on this planet also. He has a work for you to do and giving all the money in the world will not buy God off. He will never hire someone to do your work for you. He created you for a special work that only you can do.
Give to your church—by all means. But give for the right reasons. Give in recognition of God’s lordship over your life and give as an acknowledgement of a thankful heart; but never give thinking that you are then released from the work God has for you to do.
- The ONE THING for today: Find a way to say about everything you do— “Jesus, I’m doing this for you.”
Ephesians 2:10 (NKJV)
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
