Under the Banner of Truth; I Chron. 18:3-13, Psalm 60, III John

The parallel passage for I Chron. 18 is II Sam. 8:3-14. You may also want to see I Kings 11:15-16. Notice too how in the historic passages, David took the spoils--gold, silver, and bronze--and dedicated them to the Lord. He did not take them for himself or his men. Even though David was not commissioned to build the temple, he collected the materials for the building of the temple. David gives God the glory for his victories. Are our offerings glorifying to God? Do they appropriately represent the victories god has given us? (Note: Though we can never repay God, nor should we try, we can know if we are offering God something worthy or giving God second rate. God's people were judged for not giving to God of their best. Their offering did not reflect what God had done for them. They kept the best for themselves and refused to share.) Remember that generosity is one of the marks of a true disciple.
