It is our responsibility to heed those instructions and live by them. There is powerful virtue and value in living out the instructions and guidance of a Sovereign God
Once we have found favor in God's sight, through his Son, Jesus Christ, we are moved to seek the kingdom of God on a continued basis. This is our spiritual journey and discipline. We have a right to claim God's Joy and Peace where there is spiritual abundance offered to all of God's children.
Christ taught us that we are only capable of serving one master. Our love for money puts us at enmity with God. We are like Cain, making an afterthought offering and become jealous and enraged when other Christians are being blessed and secure because of their sacrifice and offerings were that of Abel. It is when we love God, we honor him of giving up a portion of our finances. It is the love of God that we are able to provide offerings to help those in need.
