7 Since you excel in so many ways—in your faith, your gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love from us —I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving.
Jesus calls us to give. We give of ourselves, our money, our time and our abilities. Giving is critical for spiritual growth. When we give it lets the Lord give to us. We can never out give the Lord. People need you to show them the way of Christ centered living therefore be a cheerful, over and above giver.
