Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the
Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
(Jas. 1:17 NRS)
“God, whose giving knows no ending, from Your rich and endless store:
Nature’s wonder, Jesus’ wisdom, costly cross, grave’s shattered door.
Gifted by You, we turn to You, off’ring up ourselves in praise:
Thankful song shall rise forever, gracious donor of our days.”
By Robert L. Edwards
This hymn text and the scripture above remind us that God gives with no decrease and no end. God’s love and grace and riches are bountiful! We, who are created in God’s image, are recipients of God’s bounty. We give because we have received much and in response to God’s great love and grace shown to us in Jesus and his death and resurrection, we are invited to return a portion of what we have received.

Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work. (2 Cor. 9:7-8 NRS)
