9 marks of a generous giver
For 10 years I’ve been thanking generous Christians for giving to advance the gospel. The love of money is a central cultural idol in the West, and so it’s a privilege to be in relationship with so many who are sacrifical givers.
The Gospel Coalition (TGC’s) theological vision of ministry describes money’s place in the church:
Regarding money, the church’s members should engage in radical economic sharing with one another – so “there are no needy among them” (Acts 4:34). Such sharing also promotes a radically generous commitment of time, money, relationships, and living space to social justice and the needs of the poor, the oppressed, the immigrant, and the economically and physically weak.
