Give Till You Love

But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.” – 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

If you feel like you don’t have enough – give, because God sees your giving as “sowing”, and will allow you to “reap bountifully”.
If you feel like you don’t want to give – give, because the love of money is the root of all evil.  Letting go of it ensures it does not become your idol.

If you feel like you cannot give cheerfully – give and then give more, because eventually the cheer will come when you lose your love for money.
If you realize your motivation for giving is only to receive more from God – keep giving, and learn to love the feeling of showing love to others more than being selfish.  You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving. 

“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. As it is written: “He has dispersed abroad,
He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever.”  Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.” – 2 Corinthians 9:8-12

“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:19
