There are many people in this church being very generous with their time and money. How can we be increasingly sacrificially generous with our time, our talents, our gifts and our money - what is God saying to us? It's about our heart - not obeying a command, but expressing gratitude for the grace we have received. It's also about our holiness - giving is between us and God, having the same attitude as Jesus. It's about the health of the church - equality means that those who need to receive will receive, and those that are able to give more abundantly will do so. And it is important that the church has transparent finances and stewards really well all money given. Let's be a generous church, loving this city, going the extra mile, being sacrificial.
