There are many reasons to give but here’s a few:
- We give because everything we own is God’s, and it’s a privilege to give back to him (1 Chronicles 29:14).
- We give because we’ve so richly received from God, including his son Jesus Christ (2 Cor 8:9). We’re exhorted to be generous like him.
- We give as a form of worship to God (Phil 4:18). God graciously accepts our giving as a ‘fragrant sacrifice’ when it’s given in the spirit of thanksgiving.
- We give to further God’s Kingdom (Matt 6:19-21). God’s Kingdom needs funding as well, and why not store our treasure in heaven?
