St. Paul tells us that we are to be “cheerful givers.” Generosity can be manifested through contributions of our time, talent, and treasure. When we open our hearts to giving, we are opening our hearts to God. Giving helps break the power that money holds over us, and it helps us to remember that all of these resources ultimately belong to God. As we’ve mentioned before, one of our favorite financial planning techniques is to slowly, but surely, increase your savings rate. We like to use the same philosophy when
it comes to charitable giving. Imagine the impact that could be made if each Christian increased their giving by just 1% each year. There would be millions of dollars freed up for kingdom purposes!
CHALLENGE: Set a giving goal and execute it!
