First, God generously gave us His One and Only Son. He calls each and every one of us to be generous as well. Second, what you do with what God has given you shows the world where your heart is. Third, as you trust God with your finances while supporting your local church you are furthering the ministry of the message of God's love because the church proclaims the love of Jesus Christ and serves your community. In conclusion, we want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.
