Foundations of Giving
God Owns it All (Psalms 24:1-2)
God is the rightful owner of all I have. He trusts me to steward what belongs to him in a way that reflects his priorities and demonstrates wisdom and faith. Since it all belongs to him, I need to submit to the giving principals laid out in his word.
Giving is to be done with a Grateful Heart (2 Corinthians 9:7)
God asks that we give out of loving and thankful hearts for all that He has done for us.
Giving is an act of Worship (Romans 12:1)
We include the collecting of tithes and offerings in the weekend service as a visible reminder that giving is an act of worship.
