Your gift helps us live out our vision to serve the world.
Jesus talked about money more than anything else, perhaps because he understood the unique power money has to make us feel like we’re in control and self-reliant—qualities precisely opposite of the trust and faith at the core of a relationship with God through Christ.
At The Highway Community, we’d love to avoid talking about money. But the reality is that money is necessary to sustain our community—to provide for worship space, office space, electricity, web hosting, staff compensation, coffee and snacks on Sunday mornings…and the list goes on.
As God has faithfully provided for The Highway Community through the years, our desire as a community is to continually grow and be challenged to give according to several biblical principles:
Giving From Firstfruits // Throughout the Old Testament, the Israelites were consistently commanded to give from the firstfruits of their crops as an acknowledgement that everything they had came from God. Proverbs 3:9 says, Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops. God does not ask for what’s left after we’ve paid for everything else. Our giving to him should be from our firstfruits.
Giving Sacrificially // In Mark 12, Jesus was watching people put their money into the temple treasury. Rich people threw in large amounts. And then a poor widow came along and put in a fraction of a penny. Jesus commended her. The others had given out of their wealth, but she had given sacrificially—she put in all that she had to live on. Jesus makes it clear that our gifts to God should be substantial enough to be considered sacrificial. Giving isn’t sacrificial unless it’s a sacrifice.
Giving Cheerfully // 2 Corinthians 9:7 says Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Giving sacrificially from our firstfruits should be done with joy. God doesn’t want us to give out of duty—he wants us to give because we love him. So we should give what it is in our hearts to give with joy and thanksgiving.
God wants us to demonstrate our love for him through obedient giving. And when we give obediently—from our firstfruits, sacrificially, and cheerfully— we allow God to prove his faithfulness to us, both as individuals and as a community.
