Scripture teaches us that everything we have is a gift from God and that we are merely "stewards" or "managers" of the time, talent and material resources that He has given to us, and for which He will hold us accountable. One aspect of that larger stewardship responsibility has to do with the way that we allocate our financial resources and the impact that those decisions have on the condition of our hearts. In Matthew 6:19-21, Jesus cautions us not to place our trust in earthly "treasure:"
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Giving back to God a portion of the financial resources He has entrusted us with is not only good stewardship; it is also an act of worship and of obedience to Jesus’ command for us to “store up treasures in heaven."
At New Hope, we believe that giving is an act of worship that takes place between ourselves and God. In order to make giving easier, we've setup the ability to give through PayPal.
