We give time. We give our talents. We give money.

Giving is…
     *an act of worship
     *an expression of faith
     *a discipline for spiritual growth
Using the book  Giving to God: The Bible’s Good News about Living a Generous Life, (Mark Allan Powell) we’ve learned that it is not as important where or how much we give, but why.
We ask ourselves, why do we give what we give?
We give because it pleases God. We give because it promotes God’s purposes of love, joy, and peace. We give because it strengthens our relationship with God.
Joyful people are generous people, and generous people are joyful!
