So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
Although it is true that the church needs our financial contributions to continue its ministries, that is not why we give. We give to the church because it allows us to participate in the amazing things God is doing in our world. We give because it is a joyful and natural response to the countless blessings we have received from God’s hand. We give because it is in our nature to serve others with generosity and love. Put simply, we give because we know that we belong to God.
We put God first when we tithe 5-10 percent of our income back to God through the church. Of course, we realize that some have been so richly blessed that they may choose to give more. Others, at various times in their lives, may find it necessary to give less. But our desire should be to give joyfully to further enable God’s work in Concord North Carolina and around the world.
