Financial Giving Principles:

  • Finances must be given after premeditation of the amount one chooses to give (2 Cor. 9:7).

  • Finances must be given from surplus; after your household, nutritional needs are met (2 Cor. 8:3; 1 Tim. 5:8).

  • Finances must be given after your primary ministry giving - in, by, and for your local church - has been met (1 Cor. 16:1-2).

  • Finances must be given convinced this ministry is Scripture-warranted and God-glorifying (Pro. 3:9-10; Matt. 6:19-21).

  • Finances must be giving as an investment for ministry/thanksgiving returns (2 Cor. 9:10-14; Phil. 4:17).

  • Finances must be given with the understanding that you will reap (more ministry) what you sow (more resources) (Luke 6:38; 2 Cor. 9:6, 8; 1 Tim. 6:5).

  • Finances must be given voluntarily, in the amount of your choosing (2 Cor. 9:7).

  • Finances must be given willingly, with no grief from the presence of regret or obligation (2 Cor. 9:7; 1 Tim. 6:9-10).

  • Finances must be given with thrill and pleasure (2 Cor. 9:7).

  • Finances must be given sacrificially, with no worry of the future (Pro. 23:4-5; Matt. 6:31-33; Mark 4:19; Phil. 4:19).

  • Finances must be given knowing your needs and happiness will be met ultimately in eternity (Phil. 4:19; 1 Tim. 6:17).

  • Finances must be given with contentment of one's lot in life, knowing rewards will be given in heaven (Prov. 19:17; Ecc. 5:10; Phil. 4:11-12; Heb. 13:5).
