“God doesn’t want you to give with a grudge—that is, you give but you’d rather not. He takes no pleasure in gifts presented resentfully, regardless of the amount involved.

God is not a celestial landlord tapping a greedy, outstretched palm, demanding His due, having no concern for how you feel about it.

God doesn’t want you to give to Him out of a reluctant acquiescence to the reality that He owns it all anyway. He wants you to give because you want to.”

~ Donald S. Whitney
