Christ laid down all of his life for us, and we respond by giving back to him.
Money and material possessions are not our god; they are temporary fixtures in this life. Jesus invites us to trade these earthly resources for heavenly treasure, so we choose to sow generously toward God’s plans in this world, and reap generously the blessing of his rewards as we watch his ministry expand in our lives, neighborhoods, and city.
As the family of God, we also regularly share our abundance with those who in need. We are not possessive of what God has given us, but generous toward God and toward one another as we learn to have “all things in common.”
[Romans 12:1; Matthew 6:24; Matthew 6:19-21; 2 Corinthians 9:6; Acts 4:32]
