Why is giving so important?

Giving is a touchy subject because money matters.

Imagine this. Say you somehow got ahold of my personal budget, so you find out that I have a line item for coffee. If you don't know me, you'll rightly surmise that I enjoy coffee. Money matters because how we use it reveals our priorities. Money reveals what it is that is important to us. 

We live in a culture where spirituality cannot be separated from generosity. If you look at Jesus' life and teaching, you'll find that he implores his followers to give to those in need and commit to a lifestyle of loving generosity. The Scriptures say that God loves a cheerful giver, not because the church's needs are met, but because God's heart is made glad when we depend on him to provide for us. 

So we give to God, through the work of the church, because God's renewal of all things is important to us. We want to see Jesus change lives. We're called to love people, and money is a big part of that.
