<580> Thesis: The "grace/faith-function" of "giving" is the ability to meet needs at the material level. Introduction: In our studies thus far in this paragraph, we have considered the fact that each of us has been granted "grace" for a particular activity that we are to make a primary focus of our lives. No one can do all things well, but everyone can do some thing particularly well if there is a willingness to believe God and make His agenda ours. We have considered some of the more "visible" and "vocal" grace/faith-functions, including prophecy, ministry, teaching, and exhortation. This evening we are going to look into one or more of the less "visible" functions, and we are going to begin with "giving".
