"But just as you excel in everything--in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us--see that you also excel in this grace of giving."
2 Corinthians 8:7 (NIV)
Why do we give?
Throughout Scripture, we are reminded of the importance of giving back a portion of what God has provided for our use. His word tells us that giving is an act of worship (Matt. 6:21) that should be done withy a spirit of thanksgiving (2 Cor. 9:7). Even though we live in a consumer-driven culture that tells us that acquiring "things" is so important, the truth of God's word hasn't changed - He still calls us to give to others and to the work of His church.
