There are several ways in which you can financially invest in God’s Kingdom:
Tithing is our regular giving to the Lord. When Christ touches our life, He touches all of it: All we possess, families, homes, gifts and abilities, resources, all comes under his ownership. Scripture teaches us: Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!
– Malachi 3:10
Offerings (above and beyond the tithe)
Offerings are what we give to the kingdom above our regular giving. Scripture teaches us: You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.
– 2 Corinthians 9:7-8
