Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:7-8
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO GIVE?
Jesus teaches us to give our whole selves to God in love and devotion. This includes monetary giving. The tithe (10%) serves as a biblical standard for giving. However, God calls us above all to give sacrificially and cheerfully. Some are working toward 10% giving, some are at 10% giving, and some are being called to give beyond 10%. The important thing is that you and God decide how much to give as an expression of personal faithfulness.
