Don't Make These 3 Mistakes when Giving

Anne Peterson - Poet and Author

1. Don't Give What You Ought to Toss Out

Sometimes we need to ask ourselves, "would I want to receive this for my family? If not, toss it. Remember, we're to give as if we were giving it to the Lord.

2. Don't Have Strings Attached to What You Give

When we give freely, we have no expectations. God's Salvation is a gift. God gave, even though some will reject his Gift. Read John 3:16.

3. Don't Give Only When Others Know It

If we cannot give anonymously at times, maybe our motives aren't right. God tell us in Matthew 6:3, to not even let our other hand know what we are giving. You see, giving is not a spectator sport.
