"Doing nothing with the time, talent, and treasure that we have is, in a way, stealing from God. Because, in the end, it all belongs to Him anyway. It's only on loan. And we are expected to use whatever resources we have at our disposal to help build God's Kingdom. And not just out of a sense of obligation. What God really wants is for us to do this out of a sense of generosity. As a response to Him being so generous to us. Since we know how much God loves us, we want to give of ourselves in response to that love."
