God's grace and love for us are worth more than any material thing that we could give. His sacrifice on the cross is greater than any of us could make. And yet in Matthew 6:24, the Bible tells us that the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus... is money. Giving allows us to practice surrender and obedience, and is a practical way to demonstrate that God is more important to us than material things.
And when we take this step of obedience to give to the local church, it has tangible impact on our communities. When you give, you are making a difference in someone’s life! Marriages are restored, lives are healed, and people are introduced to Jesus- and the full life He offers.
Now, in this digital world, we know that you might not have cash or a check on hand- but that doesn't have to hold you back! You can be obedient today by giving online.
Your life is busy these days, isn’t it? Between paying bills, running errands, and remembering birthdays and anniversaries, giving can easily get put on the back burner.
The truth is, it doesn’t have to be this way. You can literally schedule your next gift in two minutes. Go ahead, give your brain a break. It deserves it.
A tithe- which just means “tenth”- is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income before taxes or anything else comes out. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. The Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. We can’t outgive God.
We know tithing is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone- and there is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church!
Enter the amount you were paid before taxes or anything else was taken out of your paycheck.
