First, it is a matter of gratitude. Giving generously is a way to thank God for all the blessings we have received. Gratitude for our lives, our loved ones around us, our time, talent, and treasure. Thankfulness for the forgiveness of our sins and the promise of our resurrection to eternal life. We express our gratitude by loving God and neighbor, following Christ’s teachings, and generously sharing from what God has given us.
Second, giving is a matter of our identity. We are created in the image of God who is exceedingly good and generous. As we give generously, we fulfill the deep truth of our identity and purpose as children of God. Because giving is part of what we were created to do, being a generous giver is the way to live a full and meaningful life.
Third, it is a matter of impact. To help make an impact in our world, Jesus told us to make disciples, feed the hungry, clothe the naked all to transform both people and the world. Our generous giving to the HUB makes a difference in your community and the world.
