GIG 241 - Grace Giving
"So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work." (2 Cor 9:7-8 NKJV)
This week we talk about what it is to give grace-fully. It's not about giving to get something back from God. Rather, God provides for us sufficiently, by His grace - not by anything we've done to earn it - and enables us to give to others. It may be money and it may have absolutely nothing to do with money, but as God provides for us we are able to be generous to others, and we're able to do it cheerfully, not grudgingly!
