Giving Churches

What moves one church to give super generously, but another to hold onto their funds? The churches of Macedonia gave liberally, and Paul revealed why when he said of them, “And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God” (2 Corinthians 8:5).
Some Christians give themselves to the Lord, but will not give themselves to preachers of the Gospel. Some give themselves to preachers, but not to the Lord. Of course, some Christians do not give themselves to either one.
Yet, if you find Christians, and even a whole church, who give themselves to both, you have found heaven on earth.
What does your weekly giving reveal about you?
