The Bible says more about giving than heaven, prayer or even faith!
Here’s just a sample of what God says about giving:
Faithful giving draws me closer to God
“Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will be also.” Matthew 6:21
Faithful giving is the key to a full life
“Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and should give generously…. By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may take hold of real life.” 1Timothy 6:18-19
Faithful giving blessed me in return
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the LORD Almighty, “I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Let me prove it to you!” Malachi 3:10
Faithful giving makes me happy
“There is more happiness in giving than in receiving.” Acts 20:35
Faithful giving reminds me that everything belongs to God
“But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today.” Deuteronomy 8:18
The Bible says that every believer should give a minimum of 10% of their income, or a tithe, to the local church. Anything over 10% is called an offering and is a way to honor God through giving sacrificially.
All contributions are 100% tax deductible. Giving statements are mailed at the middle and end of the year to help you keep track of your giving.
One person gives freely,
yet gains more;
another withholds what is right,
only to become poor.
A generous person will be enriched,
and the one who gives a drink of water
will receive water.
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you; a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over—will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”
This is how we have come to know love: He laid down His life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has this world’s goods and sees his brother in need but closes his eyes to his need—how can God’s love reside in him? Little children, we must not love with word or speech, but with truth and action.
1 John 3:16–18
