Why Giving and Generosity?
One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. —Proverbs 11:24
The effects of acting miserly are counterintuitive: the more you hoard, the more you will experience need. Yet those who give freely have plenty. These economics only make sense in light of God’s involvement. Withholding the resources the Lord has given to you turns your money into an idol, one that does nothing but offer anxiety and need.
Break me of my selfishness. Give me Your eyes to see the need of others and Your heart to grasp their great value to You. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, conform my view of finances with that of Jesus. Amen.
How you steward your finances is important to God. Introduce the topic in your morning prayer. Begin your day by asking for God’s wisdom as to how you might use your finances to bless others.
FROM PASTOR CONNOR BALES
As believers, we are called to give of our talents – not only financially, but also our spiritual gifting through volunteering. We have safe and secure ways to give and opportunities to bless others through legacy giving, and a myriad of volunteer opportunities.
Simple and secure. Give a single gift, or schedule recurring giving using your checking account, debit, or credit card.
Prestonwood offers many ways to use your gifts and talents in serving others – from cameraman to choir member, technician to teacher, parking attendant to prayer warrior. Click here to find out more.
Besides opportunities to watch services, we’re pleased to provide a variety of incredible opportunities to plug in to resources for young believers and mature Christians.
