Giving at Burke UMC

First fruits giving requires the theological premise that our possessions and assets ultimately belong to God. All that we have in life is a gift from God! Faith-filled, first fruits giving is our opportunity to return to God a small portion of God’s abundant blessing in our lives. Moreover, these blessings are not limited to financial assets or possessions. Most of us can examine our own lives and find numerous blessings, perhaps even some astounding miracles. As Christians, we are called to give to God “what is right, not what is left,” as the popular quote from a church marquis states. God calls us to offer our “first fruits,” not the “leftovers.”

-David Bell
