It is our prayer that as you give, regardless of the method, you will recognize it as an act of worship of the Living God.
After the Apostle Paul's explanation of the good needs concerning the person and the work of Christ, He concludes the most reasonable thing for us to do is to offer all that we are and have to God. This includes the financial resources with which we have been entrusted. We give as an act of worship in the light of all God has done for us.
Paul also encourages us to give out of glad and generous hearts because God has been infinitely generous to us. We give, not because we have to, but because we want to. We want to express our love for God in a tangible way.
