Why does talking about money in church make some people uncomfortable and others really mad?

Core Value #3
GIVING: The cross inspires our generosity
(Mark 12:41-44; 2 Corinthians 8:1)

What makes a person either stingy or generous?
The cross inspires our generosity because...
1. Jesus gave His life, no one took it from Him.
2. Jesus gave to the utter shock and disbelief of others.
3. Jesus gave Himself to God, before facing the cross.
4. Jesus gave with a focus on the big picture.
5. Jesus gave for the benefit of others.
Takeaways for us:
» Life's biggest problems cannot be solved with money.
» The first place to check when considering what to give is your heart, not your wallet.
» The church serves people regardless of their contributions.
» The size of your faith, not the size of your gift, matters most to Jesus!
