You Can’t Outgive God!!!
Giving is one of the central themes in the Bible. Jesus talked more about this subject than Heaven, Hell, or prayer. To understand what it means to be a Christ-follower, we must also understand what it means to be a giver. Giving is the antidote for materialism. God doesn’t want something from you; He wants something for you. We believe you can’t outgive God, so when you’re trusting Him with your tithes and offerings we know that He will bless the rest.
(Proverbs 3:9-10 and Malachi 3:10-12).
Financial giving can be divided into two categories: tithes and offerings. The Bible teaches us that we worship the Lord with our tithe, which is ten percent of our income contributed to the church on a regular basis. When we feel called to give over and above our tithe, we do so as an offering.While tithing is giving 10% of your income to the local church, an offering is given out of the 90% of your income. Therefore, the offering is giving over and above the tithe. The Bible says that by giving generously, we are able to "take hold of the life that is truly life." You aren’t really living unless you are freely giving. (I Timothy 6:18,19).
