Scripture to Encourage Giving
All things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee. (1 Chronicles 29:14, KJV)
Many Episcopalians know this line of scripture because we say it in our Eucharistic liturgy every week. It reflects our deepest understanding of thanksgiving and stewardship - God gives us everything! When we give to God, others, and the church, we are really giving back what is originally a gift from God.
What else does scripture say about giving? Read, mark, learn and inwardly digest these bible passages as you prepare yourself - and others - to give.
