Giving can be good, but sometimes it feels more guilt-driven than relationship-driven which makes giving bad. Giving, being generous, can seem like it is something we do because we are making payments on a debt to God that we can never pay off.
According to Jesus, Giving being Good is more for our good. John Ortberg says it this way:
[Giving] was never meant to be a way to "pay our debt to God." It has always been a training exercise to cultivate a generous and God-centered heart.
We will unpack the idea of giving for our good as we dive into Making Change (part 3b) and anticipate a brighter tomorrow!
