Giving financially to God is an important part of our spiritual walk and journey. The Bible tells us that “… everything we have comes from You (God), and we give You only what You first gave us” (1 Chronicles 29:14, NLT). Returning a portion of the finances God has blessed us with honors Him and enables His kingdom to expand. It’s important that we give as an act of love and gratitude towards God, not because man has said to do it. The apostle Paul wrote, “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” (2 Corinthians 9:7, NLT).
