WHY WE GIVE
When we look at scripture and church history, we see a strong emphasis on the church practically looking after one another in the most difficult times of life.
We see in the book of Acts the disciples sharing their resources that were then redistributed to those in need (Acts 4:35).
We see Paul instructing Timothy to teach the church to share what they had, “to trust in riches but to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share” (2 Timothy 6:18).
The idea seems to be that God’s grace produces thankfulness and thankfulness gives gladly (2 Corinthians 8:7-9), and that our abundance is to be used to help others who are in need (2 Corinthians 8:14).
We also know sharing our resources is really an obvious extension of loving one another (1 John 3:16-17, John 13:34).
Loving and showing respect and dignity to people in our space. Our story.
