Why Do We Give?

God is a generous giver. He gives us everything from essential provisions, like the food we eat, to His unfailing and unconditional love. Because of His deep love for us, He gave us the ultimate gift of eternal life with Him through the gift of His Son.

Giving is one of the key ways we worship God, and no believer wants to be ungenerous in worshiping Him. When we understand that everything we have comes from God, we realize the resources we possess are assets to be invested in the kingdom of God.

As we seek to become more like Christ, we will grow in our giving. And every time we make a decision to give generously, we discover that God refuses to be out-given (Malachi 3:10).

What is a tithe and what is an offering?

A tithe is a mathematical term and literally means 10%. Leviticus 27:30 and Proverbs 3:9 instruct us to bring the tithe first.

We are stewards, not owners, of what God has entrusted to us (1 Chronicles 29:11-12). Therefore, tithing is bringing back what is God’s to God, and He entrusts us with the remainder to use appropriately.

Any amount above 10% is considered an offering to God. This type of giving is over and above the tithe.
