Why we give.
According to the Bible, God owns everything. So, why does He ask us to give of ourselves – our time, energy and money in service to His church? Because our giving is a reflection of our love for God. He gave and has continued to give so much to us. It is fitting that we, as recipients of His grace and good gifts, give back to the people and places He loves – and He loves the people that make up the church! Giving also ensures we don’t hold the things of this world too tightly. God also uses giving to keep us in step with His Spirit. Oh...and, giving keeps the lights on at your local church!
