“But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever.”
–2 Corinthians 9:7-9
Tithing vs Offerings
Tithing is biblical. Living under the New Testament has long been debated. If we were to sum up this debate with one scripture, it would be to quote the great words of Jesus Himself, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets, but to fulfill.” Matthew 5:17. ALL of God’s Word is appropriate for learning, teaching and correction.
Old Testament: Leviticus 27:30; Deuteronomy 12:17; Malachi 3:10
New Testament: 2 Corinthians 8, 9; 1 Timothy 5:3
An offering or donation is a financial gift beyond your tithes. Typically offerings are directed for specific purpose, but sometimes people are moved just to give extra, above and beyond what they normally would put in church. Examples are:
A gift to a homeless person,
Paying for an unsuspecting stranger’s meal in line at a restaurant,
Giving food or clothing to a homeless family who just lost their home to a fire,
Money to someone who lost a family member,
Giving to a ministry for a specific need or cause,
Or giving to charity through a local church to help the community.
