WHY WE GIVE


An important aspect of worship to God is the act of giving. The New Testament church practiced the principle of sacrificial giving with joy (2 Cor. 8:1-7; 2 Cor. 9:6-8:). The tithe is not a policy the church can enforce, but it can be a sound biblical principle to disciple the believers in their giving.

In essence, everything that we have belongs to the Lord, but giving to the local church provides finances to:

  • Care for the pastor and staff
  • Meet the needs of less fortunate members
  • Provide support for missionaries
  • Maintain the place of worship
  • Demonstrate commitment to the church

In keeping with the New Testament church in Macedonia (2 Corinthians 8:1-7), we have several important principles for true worship in giving:

  • Give recognizing God’s grace
  • Give in the midst of hardship
  • Give with joy
  • Give even in poverty
  • Give willingly
  • Give with compassion
  • Give as to the Lord
  • Abound in giving

In accordance with New Testament Scripture, believers should examine their heart to give in this way: “Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).

Believers must be taught the joys of giving to the Lord. The receiving of offering in the service is a time of joy, reverence, and honor to God for His blessings upon us (Psalm 116:12). The blessedness of giving must first be taught and practiced by the leaders.
