Why We Give
Giving money and time to the church is, first and foremost, an act of gratitude and love. When we give our money to the church it is a physical way of recognizing that “everything comes from God, and we have given God only what comes from his hand.” It is an act of thanks. It is also an act of love. The gifts that God gives us are his way of showing us his love. And when we give back to him, and when we use those funds and our labour to help those who need it most, we become more like God. The early church was so quick and generous in their giving that “there were no needy persons among them.” Among many things, it was this willingness to share of their own that caused people to look at the church and say “see how they love one another.” We have been given much, and we want to be a community that loves one another, and loves the poor as God does. Don’t you want to be part of a community like that? Give generously and be filled with thanks and love!
