YOU’RE NEVER MORE LIKE GOD THAN WHEN YOU GIVE

God so loved the world that He gave his only Son.

JOHN 3:16

Giving may be the number one way you can put God first in your life. Jesus talked about personal resources that way in Matthew 6:24. In addition to weekly percentage giving— First Fruits and Tithes— we believe there’s no better return on investment than giving to the work of the local Church. In Mark 10:29-30, Jesus promised that return would come in this life and in the life to come.





WHAT IS FIRST FRUITS?




1/40th of your gross income; literally the first part of the harvest to come up.

And the first of all the first fruits of every kind and every terumah of every kind, from all your terumoth, shall be for the priests; you shall also give to the priest the first of your dough to cause a blessing to rest on your house.

Ezekiel 44:30
LEARN MORE ABOUT FIRST FRUITS


A tithe—which just means “tenth”—is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income before taxes or anything else comes out. The Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest.

And all the tithe of the land... is the Lord’s. It is holy to the Lord.

Leviticus 27:30

Yes, you should tithe, and you shouldn’t leave more important things undone either.

Matthew 23:23

Your life is busy these days, isn’t it? Between paying bills, running errands, and remembering birthdays and anniversaries, giving can easily get put on the back burner.

The truth is, it doesn’t have to be this way. You can literally schedule your next gift in two minutes.

You can set up recurring gifts online or using the Central App.




Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

MATTHEW 6:21 GIVING REVEALS YOUR HEART FOR GOD
