Andrea continued our “Living like Jesus” series last week. She helped us think about how we can live like Jesus with all that we have. How can we use our time, our gifts, our money for God?
- We looked at what St Paul wrote in one of his letters to the Corinthians (2 Corinthians 9 v 6 – 8). He explains is that it isn’t the amount that the we give that is important, but the attitude with which we give.
- Giving is so much more than money. It is about giving everything we have willingly and cheerfully in response to God giving to us our time, our gifts, our money, our things.
- It is important to only give as you have decided in your heart. Not because other people are pressurising you, or because you feel guilty if you don’t. And especially not because you think that if you give you will get more in return.
- Jesus knows our hearts. And as we practice spending time in his presence as we looked in the first session, our perspectives will change. Maybe Jesus might tell us not to give where we thought it would be a good idea.
