The truth is that God doesn’t need our money, but He knows that our orientation toward money reflects our
obedience to the Lordship of Christ and how well we grasp that he is the source of all we have. As followers of
Christ, our goal in life is not gaining power, possession, or prestige for ourselves. We exist, along with the entire
body of Christ, to fulfill the Great Commission until Christ’s return. Generosity offers one of the most powerful
ways for us to leverage the blessings of God for the advancement of the Kingdom. Best of all, when the church
acts with generosity to serve others, it is a clear picture of Christ, who generously gave his life and all He had on
the cross that we might find life forever.
