This Week on Shabbat
Weekly Drash by Andrew Green
Parable of Creation
Genesis 1
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2 pm Men and Women’s meetings

2:15 New Member’s class


Giving is an act of worship

Please Visit the Tzedakah Box in the back of the sanctuary during worship time.
It is a fact beyond dispute that the act of “giving” can be an overture of worship. Consider:
In the Old Testament, sacrifices to the Lord were designated as “gifts” (Numbers 18:11; cf. Hebrews 5:1).
When the wise men from the east worshipped the baby Yeshua, their devotion was manifested in the form of “gifts” (Matthew 2:11).
It is generally conceded that the “fellowship” mentioned in Acts 2:42 (in concert with other items of worship) embraces the act of “giving” (cf. Romans 15:26; 2 Corinthians 9:13).
When the Philippian saints gave their money for the support of Paul, God viewed it as “an odor of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well-pleasing to God” (Philippians 4:18).
