Let's be honest here. Sometimes, a week will slip by, life happens, and I realize I haven't given that week. Mostly, I don't stress about it because this project isn't about making giving something legalistic but it's about changing my heart toward giving. Giving rather than receiving. Acknowledging the Giver of all. Experiencing the heart change from regular, consistent, cheerful, glad giving. Listening for the Spirit to speak, give here.
Because I am still growing sometimes I can't hear. My ears are not attuned to the Spirit leading because I'm just not listening. Because I've allowed life to get in the way. Or, maybe I have 'given' where I was supposed to give but I, in my humanity, in legalism, have deemed it unworthy of being a giving gift. I have to be careful that I don't make this about what I have done but what He is doing in me.
