A Cheerful Giver

When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.    ~ Maya Angelou  ~

“God loves a cheerful giver.” Once a Christian decides to give, he should do so cheerfully, or with joy, says apostle Paul.   Happiness is a by-product of giving that is properly motivated. (Acts 20:35)  The cheerful giver can hardly hide his joy.  The term “cheerful” could very well describe both the inward feeling and the outward expression of the giver. A cheerful giver touches our heart. He also warms God’s heart. Another translation says: “God loves people who love to give.”
