The Heart & Soul of Giving
Many people wonder what God would have them do about giving. Scripture is clear about this — giving is a heart issue. Many people feel uncomfortable when it comes to thinking about giving, but giving in God-honoring ways transforms the hearts of those who respond to God’s call.
God calls his people to be:
Generous Givers – God calls us to be generous in our giving to the needs of the church and others. Generosity glorifies God! (2 Corinthians 9:13 )
From the Heart Givers – Jesus wants our heartfelt giving. Giving serves as a sign to us and to God of the difference God has made in our lives—and our eternities. (Luke 12:34 )
Off the Top Givers – God deserves our best! God calls Christ followers to give off the top, not from the leftovers. (Proverbs 3:9 )
Toward Tithing & Beyond Givers – God calls us to give 10% back to his purposes in the world. As people grow in faith, some are called to give more than 10% to grow and stretch themselves spiritually. (Malachi 3:10 )
