Good to be Generous
Because God has been generous to us, we seek to love and serve others as generous and wise stewards for God.
Our giving is in grateful response to the generosity of the one who gave his son to die for us. The Bible teaches us it is a heart response to all that God has given for us.
We have the privilege of being partners with God in his work in this world. And one of the ways we express what is by our giving.
There are three areas the Bible calls us to partner in:
- to give to the work of the Gospel here in our local community,
- to give to the work of mission throughout the world
- to show love to those in need.
Ultimately all we have is given to us by God. We have the opportunity to use the gifts we have in love and service of him.
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you, through his poverty might become rich.”
2 Corinthians 8:9
Giving to Church
Giving to your local church enables its ministries and mission, which you partner in, expand and grow. It provides new opportunities to bless those who are in need, both within the church and abroad.
