WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT GIVING?
The concept of giving in the New Testament is that pretty much everything belongs to God. There are even stories of early believers completely liquidating their assets to provide for others and giving sacrificially to counteract the persecution that many faced. (Acts 4:32-37 and 2 Corinthians 8:1-5) Scriptural giving is more holistic than simply writing a check for a certain percentage; it encompasses our strengths, talents and time, not just finances
“Remember this—a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” – 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
Generosity will change your life. When you put God above material things, you declare your trust and faith in him and invite his blessings into your life. But it doesn’t just change your life-we see Jesus’ transforming power at work every day through healed families, restored faith, and stronger communities.
