October Memory Verse

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Together in Giving & Serving
Gratitude: Giving with a Grateful Heart

2 Corinthians 9:7 says “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

 

As believers, God calls us to give with a cheerful heart no matter what our circumstances may be. Even when it may not be easy, we should give to God and to others without hesitation. Everything we have has been graciously given to us by God and ultimately belongs to Him. So why should we not happily give it back to Him? As a child, I recall watching my parent’s attitude as they gave to our church. I could see the joy in their hearts through the smiles on their faces. They modeled to me what it means to put love into action by giving. It is my prayer that my children and others will see my act of giving in the same way. Our actions and our attitudes speak so much louder than our words! By giving with a grateful heart, we are modeling to others how to give.

 

Mother Teresa once said, “The person who gives with a smile is the best giver because God loves a cheerful giver.” During this time of our Stewardship Emphasis, I challenge you to cheerfully give your best to God. When you do, it will be impossible to contain your joy. Joyfully give God your all, because giving is a gift, and He loves a cheerful giver!

In preparation for this year’s Operation Christmas Child ministry, you can stop by the table in the Foyer to pick up a brochure and a flat shoebox beginning this Sunday, October 18. You can also pick up brochures and boxes at the Church Office desk on weekdays between October 19 and November 13. All prepared shoeboxes must be turned in at the display table in the Sanctuary Foyer on or before November 15.
