Why do we give?
God is amazingly generous. His generosity motivates us to be generous towards Him and others. Every good and perfect gift comes from God. (James 1:17)
God loves when we give to Him in joy. We don’t give to God because we feel an obligation to give or guilt if we don’t give; we give to Him in thanks and praise. “God loves a cheerful giver.” (Malachi 3:10)
He has given us something awesome to share. Your gift helps support the spread of the Gospel, both in your local community and across the world. And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation.” (Mark 16:15)
