2 Corinthians 9:7 “Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly, not under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver,” (2 Corinthians 9:7). “Cheerful” in Greek actually translated “hilarious.” God loves a hilarious giver—you give because you want to laugh out loud, because your heart is light.
Psalms 8:9 We live in a day marked by shallow concepts of God. We’ve lost our sense of reverence...God has become our “pal,” our understanding buddy. But God is holy. He’s our Creator. He is our sovereign and glorious Lord, worthy of all our praise and worship.
