1 Chronicles 29:14

Every good thing we have in our lives is a gift from God. And He blesses us not because we are special or worthy, but because He is our loving Father who gives to His children freely and generously. And out of a heart of thankfulness we in turn need to be cheerful givers. For everything we give back to God was His to begin with. And remembering the Lord as the source of everything good, fills our hearts with generosity and the desire to show the same mercy to others God shows to us each and every day!
