Still unsure, I bring my bags in the house. My endlessly enthusiastic Dachshund, Dipstick, is running circles around my feet, waiting to be greeted. As I bend down to pet her, I notice a shiny copper object between her teeth. The penny, delicately placed between her front teeth, is proudly dropped into my hands.
It's not always about the gift.
Please help me remember to always give from my heart.
2 Cor 9:7."Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver" (2 Cor 9:7 NIV).
