Giving

Do good, be rich in helping others.

The Bible has much to say about wisdom and finances, with 2,300 verses that tell us to be generous and good stewards of our resources. Jesus taught generosity and sacrifice. He demanded that his followers serve not wealth but God, and in several parables he taught that God holds us each accountable for what we do with all our earthly possessions. In his letter to Timothy, the apostle Paul writes, “Go after God, who piles on all the riches we could ever manage. Do good, be rich in helping others, be extravagantly generous. If [you] do that, you’ll build a treasury that will last, gaining life that is truly life.” (1 Timothy 6:17-19)
