Giving is the perfect way to undermine the commoditization and commercialization of people, the planet, and our dreams and visions for a better future.
Every Sunday, when we give our money to God, we should realize that we are participating in something sacred. We are choosing God. We are leaving behind the world of buying and selling, choosing instead to live in the world of grace and giving.
We are de-throning the love of money in our hearts and en-throning God. That’s why giving is an act of worship.
You shall have no other gods before me.
