In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.
– Acts 20:35
We give as a response to God’s grace in our lives, shown so abundantly in the gift of His son Jesus Christ. When we give – of our time, talent and treasure – we acknowledge that He owns all things, we resist the temptation of greed in our lives, we trust that He will provide for us, and we reflect our God who is so generous to us. Giving is a key practice of a follower of Christ and an act of worship.
