My Piggy bank or God

On that day Gad went to David and said to him, “Go up and build an altar to the LORD on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite.”… Araunah said to David, “Let my lord the king take whatever he wishes and offer it up. Here are oxen for the burnt offering, and here are threshing sledges and ox yokes for the wood. Your Majesty, Araunah gives all this to the king.” Araunah also said to him, “May the LORD your God accept you.”

But the king replied to Araunah, “No, I insist on paying you for it. I will not sacrifice to the LORD my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing.” 2 Samuel 24

The background story here is David had commissioned a census of the fighting men. There could be many reasons for doing this; curiosity, to show off the strength of his army which could be deterrent to enemy attacks or for strategic reasons to know how to prepare in case of an attack.

I can liken this to a child checking his piggy bank and guarding it so jealously as though his sustenance comes from it. While this is a desirable quality, children must be taught from tender age to look after and respect money no matter how little. It’s delusion for the child to assume the house rent or mortgage, food and other family welfare are coming from the piggy bank.

There are usually more blessings in our lives than the substances we count; every item on my list of blessings is as a result of many more that I may not be able to substantiate. God is our source.

David had to acknowledge and resubmit to the sovereignty of God through a sacrifice; in today’s world, this could mean giving to God or a worthy cause of your valued substances or time.

May God accept your sacrifice and make every situation even better for you in Jesus’ name
