If you have found it in your heart to bring something before a man or woman of God, there is nothing wrong with your gesture, it is biblical. 1 Samuel 9:6-9 But the servant said, “I’ve just thought of something! There is a man of God who lives here in this town. He is held in high honor by all the people because everything he says comes true. Let’s go find him. Perhaps he can tell us which way to go.” “But we don’t have anything to offer him,” Saul replied. “Even our food is gone, and we don’t have a thing to give him.” “Well,” the servant said, “I have one small silver piece. We can at least offer it to the man of God and see what happens!” (In those days if people wanted a message from God, they would say, “Let’s go and ask the seer,” for prophets used to be called seers.)
Leave people to talk, they also have the choice made not to offer which. The motive of our action is what God is interested in. If the man or woman of God abuses the children God led to to him or her, at the appointed time God will deal him or her. Whether you do something or nothing, remember that people will still talk, it’s in their nature. Critics will always be there. Having sad that, let’s not be ignorant Christians, you cannot be showering your Pastor with gifts when your immediate family is leaving behind poverty line.
