Why We Give
God has provided us with everything that we need for abundant life. As a token of our appreciation, we should offer a gift back. As Jesus taught on the mount, “give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you receive.” Luke 6:38
We give to the church as the embodiment of our Lord here on earth, to support its good works. Giving is a form of spiritual discipline – akin to prayer, church attendance, and doing charitable works – and helps you to grow in your faith.
