“…Freely (without pay) you have received, freely (without charge) give…” – Matthew 10: 8
God has freely given to us – so we should freely give to others. He gave us our gifts and talents to use to further the kingdom of God. We can use it for God’s glory. Our gifts are meant for encouraging and uplifting others, and for helping others out. Whatever gifts and talents we have received from God, we can use to share freely with others. Our motive should be first of all, to share something of our faith in God. It should not be a matter of what we can get out of it. God’s grace has always been ‘free’. God has freely given to us so freely we give in the spirit of love.
