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. 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 with the right motives is an act of faith, and it opens doors in our lives. Fear has the opposite effect, and blocks anything good from happening. When we trust God in all areas of our lives, including our finances, we are able to experience His prosperity.
