GIVING IS A SACRIFICE,AND AN HONOUR TO BE USED TO SOLVE A NEED. DO IT WILLINGLY.

God just love a satisfy giver

 

BSP's comment on 2013-10-28 20:13:42:

The kind of giving that pleases God is giving done willingly. Being reluctant to give or giving begrudgingly does not win God's approval. When we give, we want to make sure our motive is right.
