Why Should We Give?
Moving into chapter 6 of our study in the Gospel of John, we looked at one of the grandest miracles that Jesus performs--the feeding of the five thousand. From this we answered the question, "why should we give?" We saw how giving reflects the heart of God, demonstrating the same compassion that God has for those who are in need. We also saw how giving ultimately relies on the power of God to use whatever we give for His glory. Finally, we were reminded that giving comes from an overflow of the many blessings that God has poured out in our lives. Giving requires a proper perspective, a perspective that reflects the perspective of Christ when He sees those in need. As the hands and feet of Christ in this world, the Church must rise to the occasion and give cheerfully!
