Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written, "He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor, his righteousness endures forever." 2 Corinthians 9:7-9 It is our joy and privilege to be able to generously give back to God and to help others who are hurting.
God saw our need because of sin and gave us his Son to die for our sins, setting us free to live in a close relationship with Him. Every day God gives us daily bread and the gift of the Holy Spirit to empower us to live abundant lives. All this is from God, who so richly blesses our lives every day. We give because God has so generously given to us!
