Three Spiritual Considerations to Guide your Generous Pledge
Be motivated by gratitude to God, making a generous return to the Lord for all the blessings in your life.
And let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the peace into which you were also called in one body. And be thankful.(Col 3:15)
Give freely rather than from a sense of obligation, knowing that God loves a cheerful giver and that true generosity leads to joy.
Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.(2Cor 9:7)
Allow Jesus to fill your heart with his spirit of trust and selfless love for all those served by the Church’s ministry and mission.
If I give away everything I own, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing.(1Cor 13:3)
