Give your tithe, make a generous donation, or schedule your monthly giving. It's simple and secure.
Why does my giving matter to God?
God wants to bless you beyond what you deserve and with more than you need. That's what the word "grace" means. God is happy to do it because he loves you more than you can understand.
Everything we possess came from God. So he asks that we give the first 10% of our income, and 1/7th of our time, back to him as our gift of worship (Leviticus 27:30; Exodus 20:8).
Giving will make your life better and it makes the world better. God established these principles in the beginning (Genesis 14:20) so we could benefit even more from his grace. When we fully commit to God, he richly rewards us in return.
What did Jesus teach about giving?
Jesus taught that if we continue to seek God first, then he will generously provide for ALL of our needs. (Matthew 6:33) For life!
God wants you to realize that he is source for everything you need and hope to have.
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 3:9-10
Jesus reaffirmed that promise.
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. - Luke 6:38
And the Apostle Paul taught Christians to make giving a weekly habit.
On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with your income. - 1 Corinthians 16:2
Giving 10% of your income back to God is the best financial decision you could ever make.
Why give generously?
In the early days of church, Christians took financial giving to a whole new level. They gave way beyond just 10%. Paul wrote that even the poorest Christians gave “as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability” (2 Corinthians 8:3). Jesus praised the widow who gave little, over the rich who gave much. "They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything--all she had to live on" (Mark 12:44).
Why did they give so much? They discovered the secret to abundance and fulfillment is not found in what you take, its found in what you give. Our lives can be greatly enhanced by giving or limited by greed.
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. (2 Corinthians 9:6)
We encourage you to give all you can as often as you can. Because when we don't hold back, neither does God.
