Here is the WHY, that follows behind this verse. So that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.


How wonderful to know that the God who created and has given us everything, just wants a grateful heart that gives back to him, what he has already given to us. How generous should we be to him and others, since God has freely given to us. May we all be changed by this verse everyday as we are reminded of this.

The fear if the Lord, is the beginning of Wisdom. That initial fear of what we deserve, turns into devotion for what we didn’t get. Our God is truly an awesome God.

Great and mighty, are your works Oh Lord. It is you who hold all things together. It is you who created the foundations of the earth. It is you who hold the stars in place and keep the oceans from covering the whole earth. Most wonderful, is that you love us, in spite of our imperfect ways, yet Jesus made us whole. You call us adopted sons and daughters. In all these troubled times, we are truly blessed.

Our slate is wiped clean, there is no memories of wrongs committed, we are free from the bondage of sin, our canvas is empty to start new! Jesus has taken the judgement off our backs for the wrongs done. Do we Believe this? Then let’s start this year with hope, for a new tomorrow, both now, and for all eternity. God is still on the Throne.
