Giving Is Ilogical. 

Matthew 6:3 NLT”But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.”

No doubt a parable and figuratively speaking.  Because how is that possible logically?  Both hands will know because its one body?  How do I keep my left hand from knowing what my right hand is doing? 

In other words, don’t over think our giving. Because giving will always be illogical when we try to do the “math”.  


Being truthful, because we can find better ways to utilize that money.


So when “giving” finally becomes “logical” to us, it loses its ability to please God because FAITH alone pleases God.  

This is what makes the New Testament “NEW”.   The Old way of giving DID NOT WORK.  It produced great external things, but it did not do squat for our hearts. 

Now, it is not about much you give and how frequent anymore, but instead God searches the motive of our hearts and he does not desire our sacrifice.  He rather see us mercificul, have compassion and feel sorry for those who are struggling.  

God loves a cheerful giver, not one who gives out of reluctancy or compulsion. 

So here is a bit of advice from Jesus himself, just give out of love and don’t even allow our left brain the luxury to over analyze it!  


Praise God,

I was born an "Evangelista", I didn't choose to be in the ministry, the ministry chose me. However, I did choose to be a nurse and I have been a nurse for over 20 years and thankful that I can help the sick in some way daily.
