    Why Christians Give

    First it must be said that Christians believe that everything is owned by God in the first place, and that we are simply managers of his resources, called to direct them toward that which aligns with his will. (Psalm 24:1)

    Secondly, Christians trust that God has generously given us His son, Jesus, and through Him has already met our deepest needs.

    In light of these truths Jesus himself makes it clear to his followers that spirituality and generosity are inseparable. (Luke 6:38)

    Likewise God has ordered the world in such a way that He works through the sacrifice and generosity of His people to meet the needs of others and, in particular, to fuel the mission of His church.

    When such spiritually connected with generosity is lived out the end results are beautiful. Entire communities are blessed, the local church is well equipped, and the Christian giver glorifies God who delights in our willingness to give toward the needs of others and to depend deeply upon Him. (2 Corinthians 9-7; Malachi 3:10)
