We need balance in our lives. We have received forgiveness and can give forgiveness. We can give of our talents and money, and bless other people. Because we are blessed by God. He said on the cross: It is finished. That includes that He paid for all our sins.
God is a giver, He gave His only Son to us. He want to bless us so we can bless others. Bless others with the Good News, and support people in need.
Malachi 3:10: Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house.
God has given us everything we have. We can trust God to give 1/10 back.
Generosity is more than about money. It is about give a smile, bless people with the gifts God has deposited into our lives, and love and forgive people who have done us wrong.
We are first in God's hearth. He underlined that when He was hanging on the cross and said these powerfull words: It is finished. Now the door is opened and we can seek Him and His Kingdom first.
