August 24, 2021 2 Corinthians 9:1-9 Giving

Types of giving: tithes, offerings, and alms

Tithe- the first tithe is Abraham’s gift of 10% to Melchizedek.  According to Malachi 3:10, this is one area we are to test God.  Tithes are given to the local church.

Alms- gifts for needs, gifts to the poor.

Offerings-  gifts to organizations because we want to give.  These are voluntary.

Many times we give because we feel forced.  Be a hilarious giver instead of a grudging giver.  God loves a joyful/hilarious giver.  We must rule over our money or our money will rule over us.  Take care of the brethren.  This will show the world we are His disciples.
