Thanksgiving Countdown ChallengeT(hanksgiving) -23 Devotion

It’s All in the Presentation


Kids have a very strong sense of possession being 9/10’s of the law. Once they are given something, it can be tough getting them to surrender it. Well, at least it was for me. There were birthday parties where my mom had to argue to get me to give the present to someone. I always gave it up but not with a willing heart.


Even as adults, we may do the same thing when we give to the Lord. Whether it’s an offering or our talents and time, we only surrender them grudgingly. Who wants to accept a gift that’s given unwillingly? God certainly doesn’t!


We must offer our gifts with a willing heart, in a way that makes the Lord happy to receive it. Only then can we both enjoy the thanksgiving.
