To suggest that You need anything,
is to suggest that You are not sovereign
and thus not self-sufficient.
To think that You need our meager gifts is to think You are impotent without us. May we never think thus.
Rather, may these gifts be an extension of our faith;
our response to Your amazing grace;
for we give not because the church needs these gifts
we need to give as an outlet to show our love for You.
So bless and multiply these gifts as You see fit that You may be glorified in this unholy world.
In Jesus name I pray,
The Pastor -|—
