ONLINE GIVING IS SAFE AND EASY

WHY GIVING IS GOOD FOR YOU? Matthew 6:21 states “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

Stewardship is at the heart of the Wesleyan revival, and John Wesley considered it an integral component of Christian discipleship. It was a consistent theme of his preaching and personal practice. Giving of financial resources was a necessary spiritual discipline of every member of the Wesleyan classes and societies. For Wesley, no one was exempt from the commandment to love God and neighbor, and giving was an expression of that love. Jesus is clear that giving generously is the primary indicator of the nature of a person’s discipleship. This seems almost shocking. It’s not prayer, or study or service, but generosity is the primary indicator of our discipleship.
