Giving is an outward expression of the spiritual commitment of a loving and obedient heart. In speaking to the church at Corinth, Paul exhorts them to give as proof of their sincere love (2 Corinthians 8:8).
God’s grace abounds with the abundance and sacrifice of our giving. Because of the Philippians’ gifts to Paul, he assures them in Philippians 4:19, “And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Giving to God is an investment, as He produces great return (see also 2 Corinthians 8:14 and 9:6-8).
God teaches us that giving is to be planned for. In this way we are prepared to care for the needs of our family and others. According to the Word, we are to give regularly (1 Corinthians 16:1-2), sacrificially in faith (2 Corinthians 8:3-4), knowledgeably (2 Corinthians 8:7), willingly (2 Corinthians 8:12), and bountifully (2 Corinthians 8:2), regardless of our income or financial situation.
Family of God, we must think of our relationship to money as a Commission of Loving Stewardship. Paul sums it up in 1 Timothy 6:17-19: “Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy. Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed.”
