Giving goes much further than our local church. When we give, we are partnering with God to heal the world.
God wants to bless you, and to bless others through you because you are the means through which he plans to heal the world.
We are called to use our wealth and affluence so that our actions announce to the watching world that grace is free and abundant, that a new creation is promised, and that there is more than enough for everyone within God’s kingdom.
And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded.
