The Grace Gift Of Giving

 

The church needs people who have the gift of giving. “6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; 7 or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; 8 he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness” (Romans 12:6-8 NKJV).

Some people have the gift of making money and some have the gift of giving the money they make. These people hear the need and respond. When a missionary had an emergency need recently, our church responded and was able to supply the funds in a few days. Money seems so materialistic, but the world runs on money. The church has bills, salaries, and overhead to keep the doors open. Most churches want to reach out to the local communities and even the world. It takes money. We know God will supply, but He isn’t a counterfeiter. He has people who will give and give liberally and generously. You don’t have to give a lot, but the widow who gave a couple of pennies impressed Jesus.
