Another day, another study demonstrating the societal and cultural benefits of Christianity.

A new survey released this month by Barna titled “Why Giving Is Good” found “Christians are exceptional givers” and recognize “giving is elemental to God’s very nature and the story of the Christian faith.”

These proclamations aren’t earth-shattering in light of what Scripture calls believers to do, yet the statistics help explain some of the differences between practicing Christians and members of the general public — and give a lens into what these sentiments look like when lived out.

Barna found 65% of practicing Christians have directly experienced “someone else’s extraordinary generosity.” Tragically, just 46% of American adults more broadly said the same, with 43% stating they had not experienced such extraordinary generosity.

Conversely, only 29% of practicing Christians said they had not experienced extraordinary generosity.
