Discovering three ways to give.

2-corinthiansWhat does Bible say about tithing?

We understand talking about money can be a sensitive topic, so let’s make it simple. Everything we have is from God. He made us and provides all that we possess and in return, He asks us to worship Him with our time, talents, spiritual gifts and our money. In the New Testament Paul (carried along by the Holy Spirit) wrote in 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, ” Remember this: The person who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the person who sows generously will also reap generously.

Each person should do as he has decided in his heart—not reluctantly or out of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.” With that in mind, ask yourself who you want to be; a cheerful giver who reaps generously or a reluctant giver who reaps sparingly? tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the Lord: it is holy to the Lord.” Offertory Prayers for Tithes and Offerings
