Genia Obal remembers the time when her seven-year-old daughter won $2 for her memory work in Sunday school. After the morning service, the pastor’s wife congratulated her.
The daughter proudly announced, “And I put it all in the morning’s offering!”
“My, how wonderful!” the pastor’s wife exclaimed. “I’m sure God will be pleased.”
“Yes,” the child replied, “Now maybe God will let me do some of the things I want to do!”
We always have to be careful about our motives for giving, don’t we?
“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”—2 Corinthians 9:7.
