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.
