Thank you for giving.
At its heart, the act of giving financially is an act of worship for followers of Christ. Rather than bringing animal or grain offerings today we give our money as worshipers of God. By such giving we confess that everything we have belongs to him and that we are merely stewards, managers of what is not ours. So we give in such a way as to proclaim that God is worthy of our sacrificial and costly worship.
God doesn’t need our money.
But we need to give. We need to give to show we serve God and not Mammon. We need to give to break the bonds of slavery to materialism. We need to give that the world may come to know Jesus as Savior and then learn to serve him as Lord. We need to give to free people from spiritual and physical poverty. We need to give to build the Kingdom of God.
And now, brothers, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. 2 Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. 3 For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, 4 they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints. 5 And they did not do as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God’s will. 6 So we urged Titus, since he had earlier made a beginning, to bring also to completion this act of grace on your part. 7 But just as you excel in everything–in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us–see that you also excel in this grace of giving.
2 Corinthians 8:1-7
