The biggest kind of giving is when it really costs you something big. God is the ultimate example of giving sacrificially. The whole story of Christmas is a great example! God gave His Own Son Jesus to the world knowing He was going to die in our place. Jesus gave up His place in heaven to come in the form of a baby from a regular family born in a barn. When we give in a way that really costs us, that’s called sacrifice. A good way to think about what sacrifice means is giving up something you love for something you love even more. We love God more than anything. And giving in a way that honors Him is greater than whatever price we pay to give.
In week 3 of BLING, we are continuing to learn about being generous. We are going to look at the story of the poor widow who gave much more than the rich, simply because her heart was in the right place. Check out Mark 12:41-44.
