Everything we have is a gift from the Lord because He owns it all (Haggai 2:8; Psalm 50:10). Therefore giving should be a priority for us who have received all we have (Proverbs 3:9). Giving cheerfully, sacrificially, and consistently is a part of our worship.
Followers of Christ ought to be known as generous people, in all things, because our identity is defined by our generous savior. The death and resurrection of Jesus represent the most generous gift ever given–when the King of Glory gave up everything in order to reconcile us to God.
