“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 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 9:6-7 NIV
At CrossWalk Church we see our giving as a part of our worship, the overflow of our hearts’ worship of God. We stress that our giving should not be based on legalistic rules or efforts to win God’s approval. We encourage each other to give generously, to sacrifice with joy that only comes from treasuring the news that Jesus sacrificed everything, and that all that we have is His.
Our lives reflect a different set of priorities because of the Gospel. No longer do we see ourselves as owners but rather as stewards of God’s gifts towards us — the time we have on this earth, the talents and abilities that He has given us, and the resources that He has blessed us with, including the Gospel itself (1 Corinthians 4:1, 1 Peter 4:10).
Stewards are people who have been entrusted with the responsibility to manage another’s resources in accordance with the owner’s vision and values. We are to exercise wisdom in using all of the gifts God has given us, seeking His direction and remaining accountable to Him.
