Finally, we give, give, give. Jesus left his heavenly throne, laid aside the glory that was his, and came to us. He gave his life on the cross of Calvary that we might be redeemed and reconciled to God. He gave us life, and he has blessed us beyond even our ability to measure. Giving is a response of gratitude for all that Christ has given us. And we give out of the abundance that is ours, just as Jesus does to us almost daily. We give of ourselves, our resources and our time. Christians in western cultures combine for a total income in the $10 trillion dollars per year range. The good news is that Christians give 50% more than the average person. The bad news the average person give 1.7% of his/her income—that makes the Christian average 2.5%.
