Charitable giving is a very ancient practice. Sometimes known as almsgiving, it was a customary practice long before the time of Jesus. The Lenten call to almsgiving means making the needs of other people our own. We become aware and respond to the suffering in others. Sharing our material goods is often just the beginning of real giving. We are also called to share our time tending to people in need.

How does giving during Lent grow your relationship with God?  
This is where we get a bit preachy.  God created everything and therefore everything we have actually belongs to God.  We are merely giving back to God what is God’s.  Psalm 24:1 (CEB), “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants too.” It all belongs to God. James 1:17 (CEB) echoes this truth: “Every good gift, every perfect gift, comes from above. These gifts come down from the Father.”
So once we really believe that all the things we have ultimately belong to God, we can go forward into the practice of giving back to God.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Each day of Lent, write a note to someone special in your life

  • Make a meal for an elderly neighbor

  • Call someone with whom you have lost touch

  • Give up complaining, take up gratitude instead

  • 40 Days-40 Items Challenge - Each day of Lent, remove one item you no longer use or wear and place it in a bag. At the end of lent, donate these items to the Thrift Shop or shelter.

  • Give of your time spend an hour in our Thrift Store and help clothe our neighbors

  • Give to your favorite charity

  • GIve to our Blessing Box where 100% of your donation goes to buying food
