Different Types of Offerings
"Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the
fruit of lips that openly profess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share
with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased." Hebrews 13:15-
The other day I was pondering the fact that, while Danny and I tithe faithfully, we have not given much in the way of monetary offerings at church. Then God told me, "But you have given in other ways. Offerings are not just money put in the collection bucket."
As this passage says, offerings can be praise to God. They can also be time, donations of food and clothing, the use of my gifts for Him, sponsoring children in third world countries, and most importantly, praying for others, believers and enemies alike. Through it all, if I am led by the Spirit to give in such ways, then God will be pleased with my sacrifice. Of course I need to offer money as needed, but not every offering has to be a check or cash. I don't need to feel guilty if I don't always give an offering at church. Where I may not give, someone else will and vice versa. In the end, God will use me and others to provide all needs one way or another.
