Even many children in Christian families don’t see their parents give and are not taught and encouraged to give themselves. So they become keepers and accumulators, and essentially self-preoccupied materialists.
Question from reader:I just finished reading your book Managing God's Money and have a question about tithing. I don’t attend a local church but am a born again Christian, who loves God and Jesus Christ. I’m retired and live on Social Security, but I want to start tithing. Do I have to tithe to a local church, or can I tithe to your ministry and other chosen ministries? I’ve been on your website and like what you’re doing, but I want to make sure my tithing is done properly.
Im ersten nachchristlichen Jahrhundert zieht ein Jude allein an einem heißen Nachmittag seine Straße entlang. Den Wanderstab hält er fest in der Hand. Seine Schultern sind gebeugt und die Sandalen mit Staub bedeckt. Sein Gewand ist mit Schweißflecken übersät. Zeit für eine Rast hat er nicht. Es treibt ihn, er muss in die Stadt.
Today’s guest post is by our dear friend Diane Meyer, who tells a great and fun story that really fits with the character of our generous, delightful God. Most giving stories I hear don’t involve a dice game and a Harley Davidson motorcycle. But that’s what makes this one so unique.
Randy Alcorn was interviewed on the subject of money and giving. In the audio clip, Randy talks about the importance of studying the Bible to know what it says about giving.
Invest in Eternity
If you’ve been impacted by our resources, we invite you to make a year-end gift before December 31. It’s the generous support of our ministry partners that enables us to continue our eternity-shaping work.
However, we’re here to serve everyone without cost, so please don’t feel obligated to give unless the Lord leads.
