The act of pledging and giving is a spiritual discipline that blesses our soul and encourages the Christian community.  It is an act of empowerment for both us and others.  It is a love action toward God and others.  

But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.

…to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ

– Ephesians 3: 7 & 12
