Jesus gives the solution. It’s the above statement. As we put our money into the kingdom our heart will follow. For example if I tell you on Friday that the price of the shares of a company have gone up by a substantial amount, it doesn’t make any difference to you. But if on Thursday you bought shares from this company, it matters to you that the price of the shares has gone up. Because you’ve invested into it your heart follows. I want to encourage you to obey Jesus’ clear instructions. When we do this our heart will warm up towards the things of the kingdom.
As we give joy will come into or lives. So let’s watch the attitude with which we give. The Macedonians had great attitude. Entirely on their own, they pleaded for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people.
