God is a BIG giver! He offers us abundant and eternal life, if we place our trust in Him. One tangible way to show our trust is to put Him first in our finances. God tells us to “tithe,” which means to give 10% of our income back to God, who provided it all anyway. Just as the tithe went to the Temple in biblical times, our tithes go to the local church—the community of believers who offer worship, grow in discipleship, and participate in God’s mission to make disciples. The local church is God’s vehicle for the salvation of the world. Many Christians give offerings beyond their tithe to other worthwhile ministries as well, which can supplement the church’s ministry.
Newer Christians sometimes think they can trust God with their hearts, without being faithful in their finances. However, Jesus said, “Lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven…for where your treasure is, your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:20-21). When we give financially, we place our very hearts in God’s hands. Don’t be surprised if you find that God blesses your faithfulness (see Malachi 3:10)!
