Faithful Giving Is Faithful Living To God
Stewardship is form of worship and our direct response to God’s generous and abundant love. Stewardship represents how we as God’s children use, care for, and share God’s gifts to us. God’s gifts include families, homes, jobs, money, everything. God wants us to all to have everything we need, and He will give us the desires of our hearts according to His perfect and divine will. All He asks of us is that we give Him the tithe (10%) in faith and obedience.
“Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.” (Malachi 3:10)
Key Stewardship Terms
Tithe – This word means 10. God says we need to give this to Him. This is the foundation of Christian Giving. In making the decision and commitment to tithe, the Christian is saying, “God is first in my life above everything else, and I trust God to provide because He said He would.”
Offering – An offering is any monetary amount that is given above the tithe – 10%. There is no offering without the tithe.
Contribution – If a Christian is not tithing – giving 10% of all that he or she makes, then they are giving a contribution.
