In 2 Corinthians 9:7 we read that “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
The new term pastor Erin teaches us today is that we are to give W.I.P.illy. That is, willingly, intentionally, and prayerfully. It is important to understand that the earth is God’s and so is everything in it. This means that what we have is not our own - it is already God's. This means that instead of asking the question "How much should I give?" we should instead try to figure out "How much should I keep?"
