God’s generosity is the model for our generosity (1 Tim 6:17-18).
Through the gospel we see that giving is not loss, but a gain (Acts 20:35), and we give freely and compassionately
(2 Corinthians 9:7) as our thankful reflection of God’s own abundant provision over us (2 Peter 1:3).
We’re not owners of our time, talents, and resources, but stewards of them (Romans 11:36). Our giving reflects our priorities and commitments (Matthew 6:21), and we seek to use our money and possessions with wisdom and responsibility (Proverbs 16:16).
We give as a way of worshipping God together (Hebrews 13:16). We celebrate corporately that God’s gifts are not separate from who he is, and we give cheerfully as a natural response to God’s character as Giver and Provider (James 1:17).
