Example text

Luke 6:38 An offering is anything you give over and above your tithe. You are not generous in the eyes of God when you tithe. Tithing is simply evidence of honesty and obedience. It is paying God what you owe Him. However, when you hear the voice of God leading you to give beyond your tithe, that is an offering. It is a freewill love gift to your God. You can give offerings to help finance your local church, a missionary, or any Christian outreach. Many ministries in the Kingdom of God survive solely on the freewill offerings of God's prosperous people.

The tithe is something you literally owe to God. Please remember that these are not my thoughts. God says if we do not tithe, we are committing robbery. He says we owe Him the tithe. We pay the tithe because God commands it. By faithfully bringing the tithe to Him, we establish our basic honesty and obedience. ) If you don't tithe, God says you are a robber. So think about this. If you knew your next-door neighbor was a robber, you wouldn't leave your windows open. Instead, you would close and lock them to keep out the thief.

Amen. Mark 16:20 The Hidden Blessing of Giving to World Missions If you seriously search the Word of God, you will discover there is a spiritual gift of giving. That spiritual gift has many different manifestations. One is the releasing of the tithe. Another is the giving of an offering. In this lesson, we will talk about giving to world missions. God gives a special type of blessing to those who support world missions. Read this key verse in its context. Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia [on a mission journey], no church communicated [shared] with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only, For even in Thessalonica [one of the mission fields] ye sent once and again unto my necessity.
