What the Bible says about Giving
Everything belongs to God
We are stewards of the wealth and resources God has given us; He is the owner.
1 Chronicles 29:11, 14 and Psalm 24:1
Giving is a thank offering to God
God is good: He is generous towards us. Financial giving is a biblical expression of thankfulness.
Psalm 107:1 and 116:17, Leviticus 7:12
Giving 10% of income was normal in the OT. The tithe (10%) was a generous proportion of income.
In the OT God asked his people to give back this regular proportion of the first fruits of their produce and wealth.
Leviticus 27:30 and Malachi 3:8-10
Generosity and cheerfulness are attitudes to giving encouraged in the NT
Jesus frequently encouraged and challenged people to give with generosity. Our attitude in giving is more important than the amount we give.
Luke 6:38 and 2 Corinthians 9:7
Regular planned giving was part of Christian discipleship in the early church
Paul encouraged Christians to develop a pattern of regular and committed giving building on the principles from the Old Testament.
1 Corinthians 16:2
