*It focuses our hearts on our true treasure which is Christ (Matthew 6:21)
*It is an acknowledgement that God is the owner of everything. (I Chronicles 29:11-12)
*It turns our focus from the idolatry of money to serving God (Luke 16:11-13)
It is an expression of our love for God and our devotion to Him.
*It is born out of our free response to all He has done for us, not out of guilt or duty.
(II Corinthians 9:7)
