The Grace of Giving
The subject of giving is a sensitive matter—one that many preachers avoid, not wanting to put pressure on their flock. The Bible, however, is not silent on the matter, making clear that the stewardship of our money is actually a reflection of our theology. Some give out of pity, others grudgingly, and others in order to earn favor. But why should we give? How much should we give? To whom, how often, and in what manner? Such questions are both practical and personal. Thankfully, Scripture provides clear, helpful instruction.
In this series, Alistair Begg draws on Paul’s letters to the Corinthians to teach scriptural guidelines for giving purposefully, regularly, and cheerfully. Whether through an overflow of excess or genuine sacrifice, believers give to express our gratitude, declare our faith, bless God’s people, and win others to Him. Because God is the creator and provider of all that we have, our generosity is for His glory.
