    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 30, 2021
     | 126 views

     | 3,621 views

    Guilt is a terrible motivator, because it works from the outside in. But grace works from the inside out. If you want to increase giving in your church, don't preach about tithing. Preach the gospel.

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on Feb 21, 2019
     | 1,849 views

    Paul doesn't just say, "Tithe and you're good." Rather, he encourages the Corinthians to "excel in the grace of giving." What does that mean exactly? And what does grace have to do with giving?

    IN GIVING, WHERE IS THE "ENOUGH" LINE? Many Christians would say, “Tithe and you’re good.” - There is a natural tendency in almost all of us to want to know where the line is. It might be so we don’t cross it. It might be so we can cross it. But we want to know where the line is. - ...read more

    Contributed by Gordon Pike on Dec 13, 2018
     | 2,605 views

    A faith promise prioritizes our faith, it is a sign of our trust and faith in God, and it decreases our faith in money and increases our faith in God. When we make our commitments, God doesn’t want us to do so out of guilt, compulsion, or fear from our love for Him, for His people, for His church.
