My daughters rarely give me anything without a bow attached. No matter how small or common an item it comes with a bow. It made me think about giving, in whatever way, for various family celebrations or Christmas gifts, charitable donations or church offerings. Do I really give with a bow attached or out of some sense of responsibility or obligation. Well, if I must, I must. I wouldn’t want anyone to think I’m not generous. The Bible has something to say about that way of giving. It also has something to say about those who give great amounts out of show. Any giving without love attached is not joyful giving. Let’s bring all our gifts, especially those before God, with bows attached. He loves the cheerful giver!
