Are you spiritually mature?
Our God gave his only son that you and I might gain access to His love and forgiveness. So, when you think about how you live as a believer, the fact is that giving is the backbone of the Christian faith. Ask yourself: Do I practice a generous lifestyle or do I practice a stingy, or miserly, lifestyle? In other words are you spiritually mature? You need to understand that as a believer you are called upon not to just be devoted to the Word; not just to be devoted to fellowship; and not just to be devoted to soul care. You need to be devoted to generosity.
