Reasons to Give

People give of their time, talent and treasure for a variety of reasons. Please consider the six reasons we ought to give listed below:

  • We give to express our love of God in a concrete way.
  • We give to insure that we never forget that everything we have comes from God.
  • We give to express our gratitude to God.
  • We give as a deterrent against the vice of greed.
  • We give to support the work of God through the life of the Church.
  • We give because He gave.

If we put these reasons together and act upon them honestly then giving will come naturally to us and be an act of worship rather than an obligation. Then whether we give the widow’s mite or the millionaire’s estate, God will be pleased and Christ will be glorified through our giving.
