Why give?


Since God is to be our treasure, believers are to give generously and freely—to others, to the poor, and to the local church.

Rather than giving out of guilt or promises of God’s blessing, giving should flow from a gospel motivation—that Jesus gave fully of himself on the cross that we might be receive everything he deserves. Christians give because we have already received everything in Christ.

“But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”

— 1 Chronicles 29:14

“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.”

— 2 Corinthians 8:9
