One of the characteristics of a Christian should be generosity that is unhindered by severe trial or extreme poverty. When we are full of gratitude for God’s grace and motivated by a desire to glorify Him, our cheerful giving reflects His heart. Alistair Begg explores the biblical encouragement for financially supporting the work of the Gospel and notes that when we give ourselves to God first, our money will naturally follow.
7But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you3—see that you excel in this act of grace also.
