258/365: Giving For the Right Reason

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

Be careful to never compare your faith to another person's faith.  There is no stated biblical contest for who can be "the most faithful."  

There is no greater or lesser favor given to anyone based on what he or she gives or offers to others or the church. 

The compulsion of your heart is the only measure of your gifts of time, energy, talents, service, or money.  There is no performance scale - only love which drives us to serve.
