Why does God want you to excel in the grace of giving? It’s because he influences the world through his people. God gives to you so he can give through you. The Bible tells us that everything we have is a gift from God (1 Chronicles 29:14). As you give faithfully, the world is changed for the glory of God; the gospel is preached; lives are touched; people are fed; bodies are healed; churches are built; and you, in turn, are blessed by God so that you can give again.
