Why are churches always asking for money?

I hesitated to put this question in print.
It is a complicated question and also a question that would be easily misunderstood. But the simple answer is that Christians don't always allow the Holy Spirit to guide them as they ought to.


Acts 4: 32-37

Why were these Christians willing to be so generous? Because they allowed the Holy Spirit to fill and guide them (look at v. 31). They gave and shared because they wanted to, not because they were made to. We don't always think like that.

If we allowed the Holy Spirit to guide us like these early Christians did, the church would never need to ask for money. We would give because we wanted to, not because we were asked.


. . . God for all the people in your church who are generous with their money, their homes, their possessions and their time. Ask God to help you to learn how to give without being asked. For it is more blessed to give than to receive.
