God Gets Much Thanksgiving When We Give
Devotional: Giving results in thanksgiving to God. Giving what God has provided for us not only supplies others’ needs, but it also causes others to give God thanksgiving. In Second Corinthians chapter nine we find out that the Corinthian church is giving to an offering for the believers in need in Jerusalem. Second Corinthians 9:12 says, “For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God.” This church’s giving not only helped provide for the needs of the believers in Jerusalem, but it also caused many people to give thanksgiving to God. When we give, we not only show forth that we are trusting in God to take care of us through giving, but also we cause others to give God thanksgiving.
Prayer: Dear Father God, thank You for giving us the opportunity to give. We want to see You receive thanksgiving. God, help us to give. Help us to thank You, and also cause others to give You thanks. God help us to not focus on ourselves but care about You and Your glory. We pray these things in the name of Jesus, amen.
