"It is a great matter for God’s children to be delivered from pretending before man....If we set our sight upon man’s glory and man’s position in the church, we are participating in the sin of the Babylonian garment and the sin committed by Ananias and Sapphira. False consecration is sin, and false spirituality is also sin. True worship is in spirit and truthfulness. May God make us true men."
"Our gifts are very pleasant to Him. He loves to see us lay our time,our talents, our substance on the altar not for the value of whatwe give, but for the sake of the motive from which the gift springs." - Charles Haddon Spurgeon
