“See that you also excel in this grace of giving…..You know how full of love and kindness our Lord Jesus Christ was. Though he was very rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich…. if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what he does not have. Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. …Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 8:7-9, 12, 13, 9:6-7)
How we spend our money shows where our hearts are at. We want to follow in Jesus’ footsteps by joyfully and sacrificially giving to do God’s work in this world — in both our local church as well as for the poor.
