Giving IS About Growing Our Faith
Giving demonstrates our faith that the God who has provided for us in the past will provide for us in the future. It's the opposite of fear. Fearful people hang on with white-knuckles to anything they can get. Faithful people (or at least those who are growing in their faith) see everything in life as a gift from God – including their money. Every time we open our hands in generosity, we are saying to God, "This is yours anyway – please use it for your purposes".
It IS About Setting Our Priorities
When we give, we are acknowledging three things: First, everything that we have comes from the merciful hand of God. Second, the quality of our life is not measured by accumulating wealth, but by wisely investing it. Third, it is a privilege to be God's instruments on earth and distribute his resources to a broken, hurting world. When we give, we are actually making a conscious decision to exchange our plans, agendas and priorities for God's.
