Why Give

God gives us the opportunity to partner with Him to bring the message of Christ’s hope and love to a fallen world when we give generously.

Scripture has much to say on the issues of work, money, possessions, and how we are to use our wealth. God’s Word tells us that true contentment in life is not found in wealth or possessions, but in Him and in loving and serving others.

Several key Biblical principles on giving include:

  • It should be voluntary, and from the heart (II Cor. 9:7)
  • It should be regular and proportional to our income (I Cor. 16:2)
  • It should be a first priority (Prov. 3:9)
  • We should start now, regardless of our circumstances (II Cor. 8:1-3)
