We are generous because our Heavenly Father is generous. His gracious gift of salvation through Jesus inspires us to use our resources to spread His love to the world. Generosity is more than just giving money, it includes our time, our talents, our energy and everything we have. At the same time, how we use our money often reflects what is in our hearts. Whatever we have (money, possessions, etc.) has been given to us by God. By giving a portion of God's money back to Him every week, we demonstrate gratitude for His gifts and trust in His provision.
