We give in response to God’s love. The act of giving is the act of loving. God was the first one to get us all thinking like this. “For God so loved the world that He gave … .” When Christians give, it draws our hearts closer to God.
One of the most exciting reasons we give is because God invites us into a holy partnership with His work in the world. Through our giving, we become a faithful part of the ministry of Jesus Christ. As Jesus explained, where our treasure is, there will our heart be also. We cannot have our hearts invested in the things that make an eternity of difference in the world without our treasure being invested as well.
