Why We Give
In two words, we give because of responsibility and generosity. Jesus tells a parable in Matthew 25 about his followers being like investment managers of the resources they have been given by Jesus. His point is that everything we have comes from God and therefore we, as his stewards or managers, have a responsibility to wisely use what he has entrusted to us. The scriptures do not prohibit debt, but do warn against the dangers of being indebted. One of the reasons is because you become an investment manager for someone else who owns you.
However, Jesus gives us more than logic—he gives us his love. The amazing grace of God freely given to us cultivates amazing generosity within and through us. Giving becomes a tangible demonstration that we have experienced the grace of God. It loosens our grip on greed so we live open-handedly and generously with the resources God has given us. Giving reminds us that we trust in God’s provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. It is also a way we participate in an investment strategy with eternal dividends as the gospel changes lives.
We thank you for supporting the mission and vision of SRPC and encourage you to give generously, faithfully and responsibly.
Remember the words of the Apostle Paul; “But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you—see that you also excel in this grace of giving. I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love by comparing it with the earnestness of others. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.” (2 Corinthians 8:7-9)
