Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost

The Whys and Hows of Giving: Give for what?
Today we conclude our series on Christian stewardship. As Christ-followers we want to imitate our Master in all we do. We want to use the things God has given us in ways that honor him, and we want to be faithful managers of everything he has placed into our care.
We are inundated with requests, solicitations, marketing materials, advertisements--all of which are designed to separate us from our hard-earned money.
Where should we spend our money? What should we give to?
In Jesus' Church we give together as a community of believers. We give to a common mission. We may see special opportunities to give special gifts, but the main focus of our giving is to support the mission of our congregation, which is to share the saving name of Jesus with our members and with our community.
Do we place our offerings into the collection plate for the General Fund? Do we give to Deeper Roots - Higher Sights? Do we support special projects and give to important causes?
Motivated by Jesus' love and equipped with the right tools, we can do all of the above, as the Spirit moves us to give thoughtfully, cheerfully, proportionately, and generously.
