Sermon Illustrations

We can give to God only what he first gave us. We’re like the kid who wanted to give his dad a birthday gift, so he went to his father’s closet, took a tie off the rack, wrapped it up and presented it to him with a “Happy Birthday, Dad!” When we give to God, we take something wonderful that He has given and that belongs to him already, and we give it as though it was ours in the first place. And He is so kind! He delights in the gifts we present, even though we couldn’t give anything if he had not first showered it on us.
