Your Giving will always go where your heart is.
Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Don’t give what God has blessed you with to idols, always remember Who gave you the power to get wealth.

5- ONCE THEY GAVE TO THEIR EVIL KINGDOM, THAT KINGDOM WAS EMPOWERED BY THEIR GIVING OF GOLD AND THEIR EVIL KINGDOM WAS ABLE TO BUILD.
5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the Lord.
