Even in times of scarcity, God wants our hearts. It is easier to give when there is abundance, but lean times prompt us to trust God at
a greater level. The widow who gave her last mite did not make a very big financial contribution, but Jesus said she gave the largest gift of all.
All Things New is about all of us coming together, giving generously, and trusting God to do the rest.
It may mean that God is asking you to trust Him by making a faith commitment that you do not know how to fulfill right now.
God has supplied our every need in Christ, and we trust that He will honor a heart that wants to give generously in response to the gospel.
All Things New means all of us, together — for God’s glory, for our neighbors, and for our world.
There may also be ways to be sacrificial with your lifestyle to create margin for generosity in your life.
Some will cancel cable, and some will ditch the smartphone plan and return to a basic mobile phone. Others will play a
little less golf and still others will forego a few caramel macchiatos every week. Some families will buy a smaller
home or rent a smaller apartment to be able to give generously for the progress of the gospel. Find ways to involve
the entire family in the process of giving generously. Use this as an opportunity to teach children and grandchildren to obey
the Lord with a generous heart and to trust Him. This is a great opportunity to take a look at our overall stewardship of all that God has entrusted to us.
