The following go together, and you can’t have one without the other:1. Rejoicing in God (being thankful, but much more)
2. Willing, sacrificial, and joyful giving. 1 Chr 29:9
3. Glorifying God.
The People and David showed this in 1 Chronicles 29.

(2 Chorinthians 9:7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.)
In part 2 (Mar. 8), Crawford gives four applications and his conclusion is
Life was given to us in order for us to give our lives back to God to be a showcase for his Glory.
This is from Romans 12:1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
