Joyful Giving

"Have all the time you need to make this offering in your own way...nothing forced or hurried at the last minute. Take plenty of time to think it over, and make up your own mind what you might give. God loves it when the giver delights in the giving."
(2 Corinthians 9:7, adapted from Eugene Peterson's THE MESSAGE).
