God loves a cheerful giver.  But why would a Christian want to cheerfully give financial donations to a church, or another charity, or a person?  Here are some of the answers we have come up with at Oakridge Baptist Church.  We should give cheerfully because:

  1. God commands us to (Malachi 3.10; 2 Corinthians 9.7).
  2. Giving is an act of love (2 Corinthians 8.7-9).
  3. Giving acknowledges God's ownership of our lives (Deuteronomy 8.18; Psalm 24.1; Matthew 25.14-15).
  4. Giving will keep us from lusting after money (1 Timothy 6.10).
  5. Giving is God's way of supporting the ministries of the church and for caring for the less fortunate in life (1 Corinthians 16.1-3;James 2.14-17).
  6. Giving is a sound investment (Matthew 6.19-20).

So consider being a cheerful giver.  You will experience great joy and blessing as you do.
