“Every good gift and perfect gift is from above” (James 1:17).
As Christians, we appreciate what God has done for us in Jesus Christ. We respond to God’s gift of life to us in His Son by giving of our time, abilities and resources to serve others and to support His ministry. 
“You know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor; so that you by his poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9).
