In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He Himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive.'" [Acts 20:35]
Jesus is the most generous person who ever lived. Though He is the richest one, the creator God who owns the universe, He became poor for His people.
And He gave His life so that we might live.
As His disciples, Christians give our time, talent, and money cheerfully and in response to Jesus' generous grace. So that more people may know and treasure Jesus Christ.
We give for the exceeding joy of God's people in Christ.
GLADLY GIVE TO MAKE OTHERS GLAD IN GOD
"GOD LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER!"
Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
As each has received a gift,use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace (1 Peter 4:10)
