This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

What Jesus loves to see Luke 21:1-4
Those who misidentify Jesus will also misidentify those who are IMPORTANT to Jesus! But Heaven sees what is missed on earth!
Jesus sees what’s going on V. 1-2
John 2:24 Genesis 16:13 Psalm 11:4-6
Three things Jesus loves to see in our lives:
1. Jesus loves to see HUMILITY instead of pride
James 4:6, 8
2. Jesus loves to see SACRIFICIAL giving instead of surplus giving
2 Samuel 24:24 Matthew 6:19-21.
The 3 stages of Biblically motivated giving:
First there is the call to PROPORTIONAL giving – that’s the tithe, the tenth. Luke 11:42
Second is the call to give GENEROUSLY beyond the tithe as the Lord leads. 2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Third is the call to give SACRIFICIALLY as the Lord leads. 2 Corinthians 8:1-5
I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. The only safe rule is to give more than we can SPARE. -C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
3. Jesus loves to see the OVERCOMER mindset instead of the victim mindset
