A small town had only one bank and three churches. One Monday morning, the bank called all three churches with the same request: “Could you bring in Sunday’s collection right away? We are out of $1 bills.”
It is a shame that Christians, who serve a radically generous God, can so often be quite miserly in their response to God’s goodness. God gave us everything, yet many want to give him so little.
Let’s do our best to be the generous givers that God wants us to be.
“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.
