But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you —see that you also excel in this grace of giving. 2 Corinthians 8:7
“As a family we also started to set aside a certain fixed amount of money for people in need. Recently, I started to think about how I can financially support a project, especially now, in time of crisis and pandemic. Our journey of cultivating the culture of generosity continues, and I see how God blesses us and invites us to grow in this discipline.”
Igor Syrbu is a church pastor in Chișinău, Moldova.
I hope to meet Igor when I am in Chișinău this weekend. I love how he describes growth in generosity. It’s a journey that he is taking with his family. Along the way, they are learning that they are blessed to participate in caring for the poor, funding a project, and other things.
How might you serve the poor and give to projects?
I encourage people to add things to their giving portfolio to grow in this grace. For example, add a missionary or ministry to your monthly giving. Add a project or set aside money to give to families in need. And, by all means, talk about it as family so you grow and watch God supply together.
When this posts I am in flight to Kyiv, Ukraine.
