What’s the Big Idea?
God calls believers to be wise stewards of money. Giving is a demonstration of our faith in our loving heavenly Father. When we give, we show that we are trusting Him to meet our needs for the future and to further God’s kingdom and work in the world.
What’s the Problem?
Because we are made in God’s image, we have the desire to give; however, many of us do not experience all God has for us in the adventure of giving. Perhaps we don’t fully understand what the Bible teaches about giving. Or we may have become so entangled by previous financial choices that giving is very difficult or seemingly impossible for us.
Generous, joyful giving is a powerful practice which unleashes many blessings from God and offers us the peace of mind that we are obeying Him. It also provides us the opportunity and privilege of watching God work through us to build His Kingdom. Let’s see what the Bible has to say about giving.
The passages used in this study will highlight the importance of having a right heart attitude about giving and then living out that heart attitude in practice.
