We give not because we must, but because we can.
Each one of us is able to give at different levels and in a variety of ways.
Consider the balance you can strike between your personal needs and sharing your gifts with Christ’s Church in the world. Take an inventory of where your money goes. Ask yourself: does my giving reflect my values?
There is an ever-present challenge to live into our values through the spiritual practice of giving. We constantly hear messages of scarcity in our lives.
Advertisers tease us with what we do not have. Perhaps God is asking us to see the abundance that we have and is challenging us to see where we can share more.
