When you give a gift to God (to your church, to a friend in need, to the poor, to a widow, etc.) how do you think He responds? Does He notice your gift? Is He keeping a record? Or could it be possible, that God receives the gifts you give as a personal gift? If so, would He be pleased with your gifts? Would He, at times, be disappointed? Is it even possible that your giving could delight the heart of God and cause Him to experience joy... maybe even smile?
