“LORD our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand and all of it belongs to you.” (1 Chronicles 29:16)  

The promises of God are “yes and amen”. True beyond all doubt. If we are enjoying abundance it comes from His hand. With abundance comes responsibility. By any worldly standard we are blessed and have a responsibility of being a part of building the Kingdom of God. The nuts and bolts of building and serving in a local church are a part of our responsibility.

Part of our response to receiving from God is an obligation to help sow back into His work. This should come not out of compulsion but out of a grateful heart, thankful in acknowledging that it has all come from Him. He loves to give good gifts to His chilrden, just as we do ours. he will ensure we are not spoiled, but He is generous.

Quick Prayer. “Thank you for your promises Lord, and for the responsibility to respond to your generosity.” Amen
