Summary: The most effective way and the best way to show our love for God is through our tithes, offerings and gifts that we bring to the Lord. It can be in kind or cash. This is the only way to show our true love, and gratitude to Him!
When we close our eyes and scan our life history, we can see at a glance how wonderfully God has led us through life. It is amazing! His love, care, compassion, His mercies, His sacrifice made for the world and his blessings He has bestowed upon us are GREAT and FANTASTIC. It is beyond our comprehension to understand. Nothing that we can do can compensate His love for us!
We owe Him everything and even in eternity we cannot repay Him. It is beyond our ability. So we simply ADORE and WORSHIP Him in singing, meditation, reading, teaching and preaching the Word of God. But more than this, the most effective way and the best way to show our love for Him is through our tithes, offerings and gifts that we bring unto the Lord. It can be in kind or cash.
When I go around the division, many of our village church members bring their offerings such as you see here, like goats, eggs, fruits, chicken, grains in bags. It is so wonderful to see these gifts. I am sure the Lord will bless them abundantly because it is the real sacrifice, not in just words, but in deeds and actions of sacrifice! This is the only way to show our true love, and gratitude unto Him!
