We are a blessed people that live in the Grace and Mercy of a loving Father. Though we are a flawed people, God shows repeatedly that he loves us immensely. We reflect that love by the way we treat those around us and are encouraged to regularly and freely give so that we may proclaim the Good News of Jesus, both locally and to the whole world.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. ”
2 Corinthians 9:7 (NIV)
