JESUS once said: “There is more happiness in giving than there is in receiving.” (Acts 20:35) That basic truth applies to our relationship with Jehovah. Why so? Jehovah has given us many gifts that make us happy, but we can derive even greater happiness by giving a gift to Jehovah. What gift can we give to Jehovah? Proverbs 3:9 says: “Honor Jehovah with your valuable things.” Our “valuable things” include our time, our talents, our strength, and our material assets. When we use such resources to advance true worship, we are giving Jehovah a gift, and doing so brings us great happiness.
When it comes to our material resources, what will help us not to overlook giving our gift to Jehovah? The apostle Paul told the Corinthians to “set something aside” as a contribution. (1 Cor. 16:2) What can you do if you want to get more information about the methods of donation that are available in your area? Please see the box below.
