Managing Your Resourses

Each of us is called to worship God with our entire life, including our time, talents, and resources. Sharing those resources is an important way to worship the Giver of all good things. We pledge to be good stewards of His gifts, taking great care in how we manage and track the resources entrusted to us.

What does the bible say about giving?

In Malachi 3:10, God expects us to trust him. The tithe is not about obeying a rule; it is about growing in our trust in God in every aspect of our life. There are several scriptures from the New Testament that help us develop healthy habits in giving.

Biblical giving is

  • Regular – 1 Corinthians 16:2
  • Humble; not to impress others – Matthew 6:3-4
  • Proportional to what God has given us – 2 Corinthians 8:11-13
  • Generous – Romans 12:8 & 2 Corinthians 9:6
  • Cheerfully given – 2 Corinthians 9:7-8
