You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 2 Corinthians 9:7-8 (NLT)
Throughout the Old and New Testaments, giving is shown to be an act of worship and obedience. Giving generously and sacrificially is how we show our love to God. How much we willingly and cheerfully give to God is a measurement of our love and trust in Him. It is an expression of our joy and our gratitude for all He has done for us. Our financial contributions to the House of Worship will glorify God and will be for the upbuilding of His earthly kingdom. Let us each seek the Lord for His guidance in giving and respond accordingly. Thank you for your contributions.
