The Gift Of Giving

Because “God loves a person who gives cheerfully” , giving should never be guilt-based or pressured (2 Cor. 9:7).

But when we give freely and generously, we find that it truly is more blessed to give than to receive.

Why Give?

  • The church is a connection point for Christian living.

  • Churches help identify those in need.

  • Your church serves your community.

  • Your family deserves your support.

  • You don’t have to choose.

Make a Difference

  • Our God is a giving God. He is a God of abundance, and He loves to give. He sacrificed willingly on the cross and then invited us into fullness of life. As His children, we are called to imitate Him. Our generosity in giving is a demonstration of God’s character and a response to what He has done for us.
  • Christians are a light to the world. As we become more and more who God has called us to be – more like Him – through the process of sanctification, we reflect God more and more. We become more loving, more gracious, and, yes, more giving. Because God is generous, we are also called to be generous. Generosity not only points others to God, it is an appropriate response to what God has done for us.
  • Generosity has positive effects in human relationships. When one person gives freely to another, the recipient often “passes forward” the gift. In the Christian life, the impetus is much greater. Jesus taught us that “it is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).
  • Christians are giving people, and, in giving, they lose nothing. When we give, we empty ourselves in order to be filled again by God. “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you” (Luke 6:38).

I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me.

Psalm 120:1

I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your word.

Psalm 119:25

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

1 Peter 5:7
