再思奉獻觀: Rethinking the View on Offering


“To suffer loss by stealing” is to forfeit the blessings that God wants to give us. This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung urges us to not be fearful of giving or to see giving as a loss. For when we withhold what is due to God, we end up losing out on the blessings that God wants to give us.
