It's a reflection of the heart. - Giving is evidence of the heart's condition. 2 Corinthians 9:7-8
It's a privilege. - Giving is one of the highest privileges of the Christian lifestyle. 2 Corinthians 8:2-4, 7
It's an act of faith. - We give out of gratitude to our Father, from whom we have received all that we have. “Our” resources actually belong to Him; but He gives us the privilege of using them, enjoying them and managing them for His glory. Acts 4:32
BENEFITS OF GIVING ONLINE
- You are taking a step of faith. When you sign up to give online you are deciding in advance to faithfully give. God always blesses that kind of faith!
- You will simplify your life. You won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or need to send in an offering by mail when you’re out of town.
- You will be helping the church. Every person who gives through automatic giving makes our record keeping much easier.
- You can focus on worship. During the offering at church instead of having to get out a pen and write out a check, you can focus on God during the song while the offering is being taken.
