WHY WE GIVE
WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT GIVING
The Bible teaches us that we are to be generous and cheerful (2 Corinthians 9: 6-7) in our giving since much has been given to us from God. We are also taught to give for the correct reasons. Not for the sake of being admired by others (Matthew 6:1), rather as an act of worship (1 Corinthians 16:2) and thanks to the Lord.
WHERE WE GIVE
Tithing is the Biblical teaching of giving the Lord a portion of earnings. Tithing isn’t taught because God needs your money. Instead, tithing teaches us how to keep God first in all aspects of our lives.
Giving to God is a blessing to the church body and to the giver. Offerings are an extra way to bless the church and Kingdom of God.
