This passage will help you understand the spirit behind all giving to the Lord. Philippians 2: 5–11 gives further understanding of the abandon of God into our humble estate, in order that we might be lifted to the heights of divine life.
When you give to the Lord, God does not actually take. The Lord is pure giving. In the mystery of this, your giving frees the Lord to become even more abundant for you in God’s riches and grace. This is the point behind the specific details of this passage.
Apply the reading to your own life. How are you when it comes to trusting in the Lord as you make your tithes and offerings? Will you surrender all your cares to God who loves you and gives you the provisions for each day?
