God has given more to us than we need, so that we may help others who have less than they need. God will provide for his children across the globe, and he will provide for the task of world evangelism and church planting and growth and discipleship. However, often his plan is not to provide directly, but indirectly, through his people—He has distributed resources unequally, with the plan that we will help each other. So, God provides his children with material abundance not primarily to raise our standard of living but to raise our standard of giving.
Giving is a great privilege, but also a great responsibility—and sometimes a confusing one. While the biggest hurdle is to gain a vision for giving, and to overcome our reluctance to give, once we’ve bought into God’s call to eternal investment, once we’ve determined to plunge into giving then we must ask, where and to whom and in what way and for how long should we give? Where should I invest the money God has entrusted to me as his steward, his money manager? How can I tell what’s a good place to give to and what isn't? God used to tell people, “everybody give to the temple now,” but we have to discern God’s direction in a way that’s not so clear.
Like all of you, on a personal and family level our wives are always weighing what ministries to support personally. In each of our roles —as a ministry leaders, and heads of household and as individuals—We’ve needed to figure out what questions to ask to properly evaluate ministries and decide which to support and how much support to give.
