Giving Expresses our Gratitude
In the New Testament, hardly any facet of the Christian life is discussed more often than that of giving. The Bible teaches that it is the obligation of all, the rich and the poor, to give regularly, proportionately, and in the name of and for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible teaches that giving is an act of faith, of thanksgiving, and of gratitude for our God and for what He has done for us.
As we think and pray about our giving, remember Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross that has won our eternal salvation. Let us tell others of the wonderful hope and love that can be found in Jesus. Let us place our gifts in the offering plates as though they were the nail-scarred hands of Jesus.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, Help me show my gratitude to You through my giving. Amen.
Blessings on your stewardship journey!
