Why We Give
By giving, we show signs of growth and maturity in our lives. As we “sow” so shall we “reap.” The motivation to give is not for selfish gain. It comes from an obedient heart. The Apostle Paul told the Corinthian Church that they were not to give out of reluctancy or under compulsion, but they were to give cheerfully, for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7). We know that everything that we have in this life is from the Lord. So, we give from our heart to the work of God’s Kingdom, knowing we can always trust God to meet all our needs as we give unto Him. When you choose to give, you show your understanding of these faith concepts.
