WORSHIPPERS LAVISH THEIR RESOURCES ON GOD [MARK 12:41-44, MARK 14:3-9 (NIV)]

Lavishing your resources on him and what concerns Him is an act of worship. I know your level as either a true worshipper or not by how you give out of what you have which is not a factor of the amount. How you give is a factor of your heart, not the number, content or volume of what is in your hand. The widow that Jesus mentioned in Mark 12:41-44 was a true worshipper; she had only two mites and she was willing to give 100% of all she had to God. In the story of the woman with the alabaster box of precious ointment, she bought it with an amount of money worth her one-year salary. Imagine giving your current salary times 12, at once. A true worshipper will lavish his substance and resources on the true God that he has a relationship with.

I want you to study the lives of those that whose lives worshipped God; people like Abraham who chose the will of God above his will and followed God into the unknown. Your worship is no worship until it touches what you have. Permit me to tell you that when you count the cost on what you do for God, you are not a worshipper!  A true worshipper lavishes his resources on the one that he worships, even when people say it is too much and crazy!

It is never too much if it is for God. Your worship is not only in songs, it also touches your purse. When your life worships God, you lavish your substance on Him, just like the woman with the alabaster box.

 

PRAYER: Lord, give me a heart that gives willingly and richly to you and whatever concerns the Kingdom in Jesus’ name. Amen!
