what does the bible say
The Bible says more about giving than almost any other subject!
Faithful giving draws me closer to God.
“Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will be also.” Matthew 6:21
Faithful giving is a key to a full life.
“Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. By doing this they will be storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future so that they may experience true life. Timothy 6:18-19
Faithful giving blesses me in return.
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!” Malachi 3:10
Faithful giving reminds me that everything belongs to God.
“But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth.” Deuteronomy 8:18
Faithful giving helps me trust and serve God more than the resources He provides.
“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money." Matthew 6:24
