Giving reflects a grateful heart that wants to give back to God a portion of what He has blessed us with. It is our opportunity to show God that He is first in our lives and that He is the owner of our finances by giving back to Him the first of what He has given to us.
The Bible teaches that we should (1) give regularly, (2) give proportionally, (3) give sacrificially, and (4) give cheerfully.
1 Corinthians 16:2 says, “On the first day of each week , you should each put aside a portion of the money you have earned. Don’t wait until I get there and then try to collect it all at once.”
Matthew 23:23 says, “What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income from your herb gardens, but you ignore the more important aspects of the law – justice, mercy, and faith. You should tithe, yes, but do not neglect the more important things.” – Tithing is returning the FIRST 10% of our income to God’s Church.
