“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His love endures forever.”
– Galatians 5:22-25
November is a month of thankfulness, a time to be grateful for all we have and those we love. As we enter into this season, I want to take a moment to discuss one way to demonstrate gratitude. Let’s explore how to use giving as a fruit of thankfulness.
One of CCF’s core pillars is Biblical stewardship, which is using the resources God entrusted to us to further His work on Earth. When we apply this concept to our lives, it leads us toward generous and thoughtful giving. We know that God owns everything and is responsible for our Earthly blessings. It’s up to us to use the gifts He has bestowed upon us to further His kingdom. By practicing God-inspired giving, you’re making an impact that will transform Memphis and the world. Giving is a spiritual act of worship, and there’s no better way to show your gratitude than by giving to those who can make the most difference!
During this time, it’s also important to remember why we give. We give because God has blessed us – we’ve received what we need and can use our excess to bless others and our community. It is our Christian duty to glorify God in all we do, including our financial obligations. We are charged to love one another – giving back is just one way of many ways to spread our love!
When we give strategically, we are maximizing the return on our God-given blessings. Ask yourself, “Where can I give that will be the greatest investment of my resources for maximum impact?” By giving, and being vocal about your generosity, you’re setting an example for generations to come.
