GIVING: GIMMICK OR GRACE?
Giving is an expression of worship that commemorates God’s grace. Grace is all that God can do for man and still be consistent with His own character. We are saved by grace, we live by His grace, and we give by His grace.
Grace giving meets divine standards and glorifies God. Grace giving requires the filling of the Holy Spirit and reflects grace orientation, Bible doctrine resident in the soul, and virtue love. Without these spiritual motivations, giving has no spiritual value. All too often Christian giving is coerced by guilt, emotionalism, or peer pressure.
Two chapters in 2 Corinthians are the most extensive passages of Scripture on the concept of giving. This book focuses on these chapters which present aspects of God’s grace, define correct motivation and mental attitude for giving, and illustrate grace giving in the early church.
