Why Giving Is Important?
There are basically two reasons. First, God commands us to give to the cause of the Kingdom in the Bible. It is not an optional gesture He leaves it to our discretion. Jesus actually talked about money more than almost any other subject. He did not do so because He was infatuated with getting rich. In reality, He died naked and poor by worldly standards. He addressed the subject of money and wealth because he knew the way people earn, spend, save, invest, and give their money is the clearest indicator of their true priorities and passions. It is why he said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21, ESV). Second, the ministry and missions of the church cost money. The gospel is free but getting the gospel into people’s lives happens by using buildings, pastoral staff, curriculum, events, parking lots, utilities, etc. Your giving matters to God and to us, greatly!
