“Generous Giving” is an entity that urges God’s people to give wisely for Kingdom purposes. They pose this question to people of means, “How can we give to make a difference for Christ’s Kingdom? The group meets annually to inform and inspire generous giving. They hope to avoid the charge James hurled at the rich people of his day. We read this in James, Chapter 5: “Look here, you rich people: Weep and groan with anguish because of all the terrible troubles ahead of you. Your wealth is rotting away, and your fine clothes are moth-eaten rags. Your gold and silver have become worthless. The very wealth you were counting on will eat away your flesh like fire. This treasure you have accumulated will stand as evidence against you on the Day of Judgment. Listen! Hear the cries of the field workers whom you have cheated of their pay. The wages you held back cry out against you. The cries of those who harvest your fields have reached the ears of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. You have spent your years on earth in luxury, satisfying your every desire. You have fattened yourselves for the day of slaughter.” Of course, not all wealthy people exploit others or are stingy. And most of us don’t have a lot of have excess money. Still, God calls each of us to be good stewards over whatever He has enabled us to have.
