Truly, your generosity makes a “Global Difference!”

The Bible records 500 verses on prayer, and 500 verses on faith, but 2,350 verses on money and possessions. In fact, one out of every four verses in the New Testament relate to money or possessions. Why all the fuss? Jesus gives us the reason as recorded in Matthew’s gospel, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matt. 6:21).

There are several reasons to tithe (giving 10% of your income). The Bible tells us that the first ten percent of our income “belongs to the Lord” (Lev. 27:30). Tithing also expresses gratitude for all of God’s blessings (Gen. 28:22). Our giving also creates an opportunity for God and others to give back to us (Luke 6:38). It honors God when we give (Prov. 3:9), and provides help for others in need (Mal. 3:10; 2 Cor. 9:1-2). Your tithing and giving places God’s blessings on your remaining income (Rom. 11:16; Mal. 3:10) as well.

But most importantly, tithing and giving regularly helps you to put God “first” in your life. The Living Bible puts it this way: “The purpose of tithing is to teach you to always put God first in your life (Duet. 14:22-23). And when you tithe at The Sanctuary, we tithe off of your tithe, and send your giving to support other ministries in Florida and around the world.
