We make our commitment to Christ’s cause practical by giving money. Jesus says in Matthew 6:19–21, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Our money is a temporary gift to us; it is like money from a board game, which is useless when the game is over. Our lives are also over quickly. A wise church member gives as much money as he can to advance the kingdom of Jesus Christ. After tithing to your local church, give to seminaries, missionaries, and ministries that are spreading the gospel. How delighted God is when His children give for the sake of His kingdom!
Beauty and Glory of Christ’s Bride
