Why do we give?
Just as God gladly and entirely gave up His first and best for us in His Son, so we too respond with thanksgiving and generosity in returning the first-fruits (the first and best) of our labor back to God. Such giving is not to be done “reluctantly or under compulsion” (2 Corinthians 9:7), but gladly, springing from a heart that has been transformed by God’s love and saving grace. So, let the gospel of Jesus Christ fuel all of our worship, including our giving to the Lord.
