God bless you for your financial support


Giving is a central theme in the Bible. The Scriptures are full of examples of people who gave generously and sacrificially to God and others, and they offer guidance on how to give in a way that pleases God. As members of New Life Church in Naples, Florida, it is important that we understand the biblical perspective on giving and how it applies to our lives today.

First and foremost, the Bible teaches that everything we have comes from God. In Psalm 24:1, we read, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” This means that all of our possessions, our time, and our talents ultimately belong to God. As believers, we are called to be good stewards of the resources that God has entrusted to us. This includes being generous with our finances and using them to further God’s kingdom.

In 2 Corinthians 9:7, the Apostle Paul writes, “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” This verse teaches us that giving should be a joyful act, done out of gratitude for all that God has done for us. When we give with a cheerful heart, we are acknowledging that everything we have is a gift from God, and we are using our resources to honor Him.

Giving is also an act of worship. In 2 Corinthians 8:5, we read about the Macedonian churches, who gave “beyond their means” and “even begged us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the Lord’s people.” This kind of sacrificial giving is a beautiful expression of worship, as we give not only to support the work of the church but also to honor and glorify God.

At New Life Church, we believe that giving is an important part of our spiritual growth. When we give sacrificially, we are demonstrating our trust in God’s provision and our commitment to His kingdom. Giving also allows us to participate in the work that God is doing in our community and around the world. Through our financial support, we are helping to spread the Gospel, care for those in need, and make a difference in the lives of others.

As we give, we are also blessed. In Malachi 3:10, God says, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” When we give generously and obediently, God promises to bless us abundantly.

In conclusion, giving is an important part of our faith as Christians. It is a way to honor God, participate in His work, and grow spiritually. At New Life Church in Naples, Florida, we encourage our members to give generously and cheerfully, trusting in God’s provision and His promises. May we all be faithful stewards of the resources that God has given us, and may our giving be a beautiful act of worship and service.
