GIVING AND THE GOSPEL

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

Many people seem to think that the reason we have an offering during the Sunday morning service is because the church needs to pay its bills and also wants to do good things with the money that is collected. Both are true, but that is not why we have an offering during the Sunday morning service.

The offering is an act of worship, a response to the generosity and love of Him who first loved us. We come to church to worship God who has provided richly for us - in spiritual and material ways.

We are invited to put money in the offering basket on Sunday morning not because the church needs our money but because we want and need to give it. We have a spiritual need to worship God, and through our offerings we are able to express our love and devotion for God in a way that is simple and sincere.

The motivation of the giver is what counts most, not the size of the gift or the degree of benefit to the recipient (see Mk 12:42–44). As we give joyfully, we acknowledge that He is wonderfully good!
