Question: “Why is giving so emphasized in the Christian faith?”
Answer: Our God is a giving God. He is a God of abundance (John 10:10; James 1:5; Psalm 103:8; Isaiah 55:1-7; 2 Corinthians 9:8; Romans 5:20), and He loves to give. He sacrificed willingly on the cross and then invited us into fullness of life. As His children, we are called to imitate Him (Ephesians 5:1). Our generosity in giving is a demonstration of God’s character and a response to what He has done for us.
May the Holy Spirit open your hearts wide with generosity for the sake of the Gospel, for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ, and for the pleasure of our loving heavenly Father.
