If our family home is to be re-purposed it cannot just depend on a few people. Instead it's an opportunity for all of us, regardless of how long or short a time we have been in the church, to join with what God is doing and allow Him to work through us. Our dream is that every step of this adventure would be one that we walk together as a church family and together in intimacy with God. This isn't something we want to do for God, but with Him. Sometimes in our walk with the Lord we are to sacrifice and in this instance it is going to involve financial sacrifice
Before we are giving towards the vision, we are giving out of love for God, as an act of worship. Paul held up the example of Macedonian churches, writing,
"They first gave themselves unreservedly to God...the other giving simply flowed out of the purposes of God working in their lives."
– 2 Cor, 8:5, The Message
It is not the size of a gift that pleases God but the sacrifice it entails. When Jesus saw the widow giving two pennies in the temple he exclaimed,
"'Truly I tell you,' he said, 'this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.'"
– Luke 21: 3-4
God wants us to delight in giving to Him. We shouldn't give because we feel pressurised or manipulated into doing so. Paul writes to the church in Corinth,
"Each of you should give what you have received in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
– 2 Cor 9:7
