When Giving Makes Sense

When Giving Makes Sense

teshuva, jesus, God, love, obey, the wordKing Solomon gave God an offering that provoked Him like no other, a thousand burnt offerings, slaughtered on the altar, in the high place in Gibeon. God couldn’t resist an offering of this magnitude; He stepped down and gave Solomon an offer to be blessed in any form, size or manner of His choice. And boy, did Solomon’s request please God or what? Let’s leave that for another day…

A lot of times we think it was the quantity of Solomon’s offering according to 1 Samuel 3:4 that moved God’s heart. But that is only part of the main thing. The preceding verse gives us the scoop of what caused God to come down at Gibeon.

I want to remind you (and me) that whenever we give to God or man we should give as a result of ONE thing, because we love God and seek to obey Him.

When we do that, our giving becomes of high value or quality no matter the size. And what’s more, God responds to us in ways we cannot quantify!

Solomon loved the Lord, walking [at first] in the statutes and practices of David his father; only he sacrificed and burned incense in the high places. 1 Kings 3:3-5 (AMP)

  1. Absolutely true! It might help us to know that whatever we give is what God already gave to us. So, we simply give him what he already owns! Stay blessed!

    1. Oh yes, it is all His in the first place.
