Generous Giving: The Bible and Giving

Dear Redemption City Family,

Talking about money in the church should not be awkward, yet nobody wants to hear the preacher talk about giving. So, why does the church talk about money? 

Jesus talked more about money than he did about heaven and hell combined. His primary point in teaching about money was this: We cannot love both God and money. Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:21, 24)

Tim Keller once said, “Living is giving. We live life best when we give ourselves, our resources, our competencies, and our time in service to others and in support of God’s mission. If you spend your money on yourself, you are just surviving. But if you want your life to count, if you want to really live – give.”  

Generous giving flows out of the Gospel. A disciple does not ask, "How much can I keep?" but, "How much more can I give?" Join us tomorrow as we learn what it means to join God in the renewal of all things in Boston through generous giving.

I hope to see you there.  

Praying for you,
Pastor Juan
