God is generous and he calls us to be generous as well. What we do with the blessings God has given us shows the world the condition of our hearts, and helps to proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances. God has given us direction in His Word, the Bible, concerning the grace of giving and the reason for doing so.
Thus, why should we give? Because:
“You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” – Acts 20:35
“And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.” - Hebrews 13:16
“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
