Why Do Most Youths Give God Peanuts? by CrazyMan(m): 9:26am On Nov 08, 2015
Good morning and happy sunday to you all.

I'm writing this piece to notify most christian youths of their giving attitude towards God. I remember last sunday when I went to church, when it was time for offering, the girl sitting close to me just removed N20 (yes you heard me right TWENTY NAIRA!) From her purse, inserted it into the envelope and dropped it in the offering basket.

Looking at this lady, her sophisticated dressing, her phone, the kind of perfume oozing out from her, then dropping N20 to her creator.

To me I saw that as an insult to God. It would have been better if she didn't give any offering at all than embarrassing God.

If you love someone and want to appreciate him/her, even if you lack the funds to do so at the moment, you'll still go beyond your limits to prove to that person that you really love him/her regardless of what it'll cost you.

Likewise God. If we say we love him (God), then we should prove it by the kind of offerings we give to him.

If you have a boss you want to appreciate for a promotion he gave to you, would you give him a gift of N20 or N50?

Or you're a final year student whom your HOD just waived a course for so you'll graduate with your mates, would you buy him a gift of N20?

You'll end up provoking him and make him regret offering you that help rather than being commended for the gift.

In 2Samuel 24:24 David said.

 And the king said unto Araunah, Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the Lord my God of that which doth cost me nothing. So David bought the threshingfloor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.

So if a whole king like david refused to take a land offered free of charge by a law abiding citizen. How much more we who battle with foundational principalities and powers on daily basics, and still come out victorious. Thanks to the power in the name and blood of Jesus.

I want to charge us today that as we go to our various churches, we should appreciate God, if if we have nothing to thank him for, our being alive should be a testimony of his love towards us. So double your offerings by giving him something that cost you much and I'm sure that he in return would bless you abundantly.

Happy sunday to you all.

Give God or man? If God can take money from me, I will empty my bank account to him.
But since na man dey chop d money, I will keep puting 10 naira every sunday.
Or are you telling me that the account the money is going into is linked with God's BVN?

Give money to those that need it here on earth not to 'unfounded imaginations'.

And Op, shvt the fvck up. You can afford N20 doesn't mean the person beside you can. Do you live in the same house to know if she even ate before going to church?

Don't know how this rubbish even got to front page.

Their parents labored for the church as evident in the number of jets flown by the GO and the churches big edifices
Let the youths enjoy the fruits of their parents

what do you mean by peanuts?


God is not interested in the amount/quantity of money you give......its the sincerity and joy in giving that matters

Well its true that most of our pastors are d spenders of the money, just drop your offering believing its for the work of God and leave God to deal with the pastor knowing you have played your part.

OP,
So because she gave N20 you now know how much she has donated to God abi? I usually just put any little thing in my pocket as offering sometimes it's N50.. But I plan my real offering in private maybe not even to the church but a donation directly to a charity or orphanage.
Churches already making so much tax free money. I'd rather help those in need directly.



God doesn't just live in your church.. He is in the eyes of everyone in need of assistance.. Your Lord Jesus said it himself. "Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers is what you do unto me.."

Stop that old testament shit
