As soon as the word spread, the people of Israel gave in abundance the first fruits of grain, wine, oil, honey, and of all the produce of the field; and they brought in abundantly the tithe of everything.” (2 Chronicles 31:5)

Our gifts of money do not substitute for gifts of time and talent. Neither do time and talent substitute for giving of financial resources, all are gifts from God. As you make your decision about the portion of income you will give this year to your parish, the poor and other charities, consider as well what you will give of your time and talent. Sacrificial giving is a necessary expression of our faith, of what we say and believe. We channel a portion of our giving through our parish because it is the body which most clearly bears witness to the meaning and values we find at the center of our lives.

The decision to give is just that ~ a decision. It requires thought and time, so that it is integrated with other financial decisions as part of a carful, intentional response to God’s generosity.

Part of our planning ensures that we give the “first fruits”, those gifts given first and not only after other obligations have been satisfied. Our giving should be proportionate or commensurate to what God has given us. Most people use the biblical concept of the tithe, a tenth, as a guide. In any case, our gift should reflect our level of gratefulness to God.

Our proportionate gift becomes sacrificial when it comes from our substance rather than our abundance. When we give out of our substance, we are changed in the process. We have given away something we thought we needed for ourselves, thus changing our lifestyle. We have acted on our belief that our security lies not in our material resources but in God.

When we consider our participation in Sacrificial Giving, we need to include our time and talent as well as our money. Just as in giving money, giving time and talent expresses our gratitude to the God who has given us these gifts.
