Giving.

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."

Malachi 3:10

Why do I give?

  • The Bible teaches Christians to be generous givers of our resources (Acts 2:42-47). Giving is an aspect of personal worship (Gen. 4:3-5; Matt. 12:41-44), and we should give with joy (2 Cor. 9:6-8). Scriptures provide a standard of giving in the Old Testament called the tithe (Mal. 3:10). The New Testament does not abolish the tithe; however, the emphasis becomes the ready participation of Christians to generously give to meet needs (Acts 4:36-37; 2 Cor. 8:2-5). Therefore, we understand giving to be our Christian duty, and we give our tithe to the Lord joyfully as a means of worship.
