A GIVING HEART

A giving heart is pleasant

Like water to a garden that’s parched;

It is timely and so generous

When through love it’s set apart.

A heart that’s filled with giving

Will prosper in all its ways;

It is a well-nourished spring indeed

And a blessing to our days.

A giving heart is kind

When it never seeks its own,

And doesn’t expect anything in return

Where compassion it is shown.

He who gives to the poor

Will never lack anything in due time,

But he who hides his eyes

Commits a heartless act of crime.

Our finances are not our own

Since it is God who’s in control,

And when we firmly grasp onto same

It becomes an idol and stronghold.

A giving heart is like silver and gold

It’s a precious gem indeed,

And it’s pure when done in secret

Where a reward will not be seen.

Because God sees all our works

And knows all our motives too,

Since we either gain the credit or give glory to God

When we give in all we do.

God’s heart is filled with giving

As He breathed life into everything,

And His greatest gift is Jesus Christ

With the salvation that He brings.
