As followers of Jesus, the Holy Spirit continually leads us towards the heart of God. We are not coerced into following God we are drawn in by his love. We are given a choice to accept the gift of God or not. We have a choice to submit to God or not. We have a choice to obey God or not. Free will is a gift – and with it comes responsibility. In this passage we see two examples of free will regarding generosity – and two different heart motives are revealed – eye opening. Following Jesus leads us to loosen our relationship with things and tighten our relationship with people.
