Everything

This week we’ve been thinking a lot about giving at the church. Tonight is our annual budget meeting, and our committees and staff have spent a lot of time praying about where to put our funding next year and what we might expect financial giving to be like next year.

This week I’ve had the honor of hearing various video testimonies from people about how giving influences them and their families. A number of people were very clear – the give because everything we have is God’s anyway. I know that I am moved to give because of everything I’ve been given comes from God. When you really think about it tithing isn’t a Christian’s financial goal, but a starting place. God is everything to us and therefore why would we want to give all that we have back to God?
