“………………..remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said,
‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”
The Bible has a lot to say about money – how God takes care of our needs, how to responsibly handle our finances, and why, how and when to give of what God has blessed us with.
A principle of giving throughout the Bible is the tithe – giving the first 10% of our income to provide for the ministries of the local church. Giving to other ministries such as missions organizations or other para-church ministries is giving offerings above the tithe.
Giving to God is an act of obedience but is also a privilege – an opportunity to participate in the building of God’s Kingdom meeting needs of the broken and hurting and facilitating and providing for ministries that spread the Gospel in our local cities and around the world. Through our giving, we “become fellow workers for the truth.” 3 John 8

More on Giving From God’s Word
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.
Honor the Lord from your wealth; And from the first of all your produce
Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.
2 Corinthians 9: 6-7
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
