Problems with the Gift of Giver

Problems with the Gift of Giving
Misunderstandings Of The Gift Of Giving


1. The need to deal with large sums of money may seem to be a focus on temporal values


2. Desire to increase effectiveness of ministry by gift may seem an attempt to control.
The Giver needs to resist the tendency to give with a hook to the gift as well.


3. Attempt to encourage others to give may be seen as putting pressure on those who have less to give. They just don’t want anyone to miss out on the blessings of giving.


4. Lack of response to pressure may appear as a lack of generosity.


5. Personal frugality may appear as selfishness to those around them.


6. May use financial giving in place of other responsibilities.
