1 Chronicles 29:3a (NLT): "And now, because of my devotion to the Temple of my God, I am giving all of my own private treasures of gold and silver to help in the construction."
David's love and devotion for the Lord was so great that he chose to be deliberate in demonstrating his affection. That was his intention when he willingly gave towards the building of God's temple from his own personal wealth, to see the vision fulfilled. David's actions of love certainly didn't go unnoticed by God. He blessed David abundantly for the practical exhibition of his generous heart. Centuries later, this biblical principle still stands strong. When our acts of giving are a natural outflow from hearts that are truly grateful to the Lord, they will by no means go unnoticed by Him. The size of the gift is immaterial compared to the motivation behind it.God always looks to see if our mouths and actions declare what is truly in our hearts. Lip service doesn't impress Him. But when our actions follow suit and we unashamedly pour out our wealth and time as a sacrifice to the advancement of His kingdom, our reward holds both earthly and eternal significance.
