GIVE | He Gave; We Give

Our four-part series for Advent is called GIVE (The word is a clever acronym for generous, intentional, volitional, and enthusiastic). This series is not titled TITHE or DOUBLE HONOR or INDULGENCE because this is not a series designed to make up a budget deficit or launch a new building campaign. This is a series for disciples of Jesus to consider how, what, and why you give in response to a God who gave. Good giving is not produced by “good” guilt or good goals, but from good theology. Giving is always a response TO who God is and what He has done, not an effort to obtain a response from Him.
