So, each of you should give serious consideration to what you want to give God, not reluctantly or under pressure, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Jesus: “If you give, you will receive back. Your gift will be returned to you in full measure, packed down and shaken to make room for more, and RUNNING OVER. Whatever measure you use in giving—large or small—it will be used to measure whatever is given back to you.” Luke 6:38 (NLT)
