Why Do Christians Give?

When the apostle Paul talked about how Christians should give generously, he said this:

“ In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”  (Acts 20:35).

And a saying in the Proverbs 3:9~10 also encouraged us to

Honor the Lord with your wealth,

   with the firstfruits of all your crops;

then your barns will be filled to overflowing,

   and your vats will brim over with new wine

If you are a member of our congregation, or if you are a Christian who wants to support the work of our church in Toronto, we thank you for your kindness and support. May God continue to bless you abundantly as He has promised in scripture.
