Giving At The Branch
Why we give.
Giving of our firstfruits is an act of worship that honors God (Proverbs 3:9) and reminds us that all we own, not just what we give, is the Lord's (Psalm 24:1). God gives eternal gifts (John 3:16, 1 Corinthians 2:12) as well as temporal ones (Deuteronomy 8:17-18, James 1:17), and when we as followers of Christ freely and joyfully give of our resources, we are imitating God. Your desire to give not only allows us to continue our mission of being and making disciples, but also illustrates your relationship with God (2 Corinthians 9:12-15) and how investing wisely benefits you (Acts 20:35, Luke 12:33). Let us all prayerfully consider how we might continue to invest in this mission with our hearts and God’s possessions.
