We don’t give our time or money out of obligation or compulsion. We give because that’s how we are made as new creations in Christ.
It’s in the nature of everything that God made to be giving… the sun gives light, plants give oxygen, animals provide for their young. As followers of Jesus, we align ourselves to be givers, even sacrificially, just as He gave His life for the world. The Bible says that God loves a hilarious giver, so giving for the Christian means it starts first with the heart, the attitude. So it’s out of a generous and joy-filled heart that we give ourselves and our resources to God’s work, because we know we can never out-give God who gives us life.
