Why Do We Give?

God commands generosity. Giving––of our time, of our money, of our praise––is something that we must do.

And yet, it isn’t just the giving that is crucial.

All of this is meaningless, at least for us, if we simply give for the sake of giving, or because we are supposed to give.

“If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing” (1 Corinthians 13:3).

It isn’t just about the giving. Indeed, giving is hard — and we must do it, but we cannot simply give out of compulsion.
