Investing in God’s Community
We are called to respond to the many blessings God has given each of us by returning a portion of these blessings to support the work of Jesus in and through our church to the wider community. In the Old Testament of the Bible, King David acknowledges, “But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to make this freewill offering? For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you” (1 Chronicles 29:14). Jesus also reminds us to invest what has been given to us in meaningful pursuits by saying “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:20).
