Religion can confuse Christians in the area of financial giving. Some people have even resolved not to give because they think God has nothing to do with giving. As a result, many believers have lost confidence in it and are afraid to give. God is the ultimate giver; He gave us His only Son. Giving with the intention of blessing others falls in line with the example He set. Giving is within God’s plan for us, but fear of giving can stop us from living out this plan. Giving with the right motives is an act of faith, and it opens doors in our lives; fear has the opposite effect, and it blocks anything good from happening. We are not the source of our prosperity. When we trust God in all areas of our lives, including our finances, He is able to prosper us.
