Giving is about worship
Jesus talked about money more than any other subject. He knew our hearts, desires, and allegiances are tied to our belongings. Giving keeps our focus on Christ. It frees us to live as He wants.
Giving is about gratitude
We give out of thanks to God, for who He is, and what He has done. Everything we have is a gift from Him and we want to give some back.
Giving is about stewardship
We are tempted to talk about what we have as “our stuff,” but Scripture says “the earth is the Lord’s and everything in it,” including us. We have to take care of what God has given to us. We must use what we have for God’s purposes. This pleases God and lets us be a part of what He is doing, experiencing joy and partnership with Him.
Giving is about love
People in the early church loved each other. They shared what they had to make sure no one was in need. They loved gladly and practically. This is part of being family.
