I've been an irregularly giver at my local church, Crosspoint, for the past two years. It's difficult as a young person to give regularly for a variety of reasons and excuses, but the rewards are so plentiful. My family always raised me to think this way, and the truth is that giving is a wonderful experience that brings many personal fulfillments. So why wait any longer?
My goals for giving:
- Focus my life by challenging my resources, time, and energy
- Remind and push myself to live for God through helping others
- Increase my giving year after year
Today I finally decided to become a regular giver and I look forward to challenging myself in the future. My contributions may be small, but pushing myself in generosity is a spiritually uplifting process. What many people forget, myself as well, is that there are many ways to give other than money. Planning, focus, and a desire to help others comes in many shapes and sizes.
How does giving impact your life?
