Psalm 116:12 states:
"What shall I return to the Lord for all his goodness to me?"
New testament giving is a response to God's goodness that is so abundant in our lives. Out of a heart filled with gratitude flows generous giving. As Christians, we should conscientiously and systematically tithe our income to God.
As 2 Cor. 9: 6-15 teach us,
God loves a cheerful giver and we need to give generously without grudging. Giving is demonstrated in the New Testament as our direct response to God's grace. Since grace is God's unmerited gift to us, giving is our unmitigated gratitude to God.
Thank you for your generous and regular giving. Grace Ethiopian Church appreciates your prayers and financial support to fulfill God's purpose for our church in carrying on Christ's ministry.
