Why We Give
Giving for the Christian is a spiritual act of obedience based upon faith in God who is the provider of all we have. This obedience is expressed in the stewardship of our time, talents and treasure as we follow the example of Jesus Christ. The following scriptures provide the foundation for our understanding of Christian 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.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Give and it will be given 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 to you.
