Jesus was confronted about giving by the followers of the Pharisees and Herod.
They approached giving as an obligation.
Jesus saw their motivation, he could look into their heart.
Jesus response demanded two actions.
- Give to Caesar what was made in Caesar’s image.
- Give to God what was made in God’s image. (Genesis 1)
When it comes to giving, whether it be your money, your time, or your talent, we need to give Cheerfully! (2 Cor. 9:7)
When we are not generous with all of who we are, we are robbing from God. (Malachi 3:8-12)
Main Point: When it comes to giving of yourself to God do you see it as an obligation or an opportunity?
