Generous Giving

Every Jesus-disciple should pledge tithe to the local church, forgive personal debt, and share with the poor.

We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God that has been given among the churches of Macedonia, for in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part. For they gave according to their means, as I can testify, and beyond their means, of their own accord, begging us earnestly for the favor of taking part in the relief of the saints—and this, not as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then by the will of God to us. Accordingly, we urged Titus that as he had started, so he should complete among you this act of grace. But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you3—see that you excel in this act of grace also.

2 Cor 8:1-7

Jesus continually promoted a Faith rooted in heartfelt-sacrifice over that of legalistic ritual. He spoke harshly against the Pharisees who abused the Old Testament tithe and at the same time gave us a clue as to how we should give, Jesus says in Luke 11:42,

“But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and every herb, and neglect justice and the love of God. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.”

From this we can discern two characteristics of generous giving.

First, a negative truth, tithing divorced from love, leads to self-righteous sin. Second, a positive truth, tithing rooted in thankfulness, leads to justice and love of God.

Giving is Grace

We give as both an act of thankfulness to God for His saving-grace, and as a demonstration of His saving-grace toward others.

Giving is Sacrificial

We give, not based on the limits of what we possess, but based on God’s limitless compassion for those who have both physical and spiritual need.

Giving is Cheerful

We give, not to fulfill the Old Testament law of tithes and offerings. We give, not out of fear or social-pressure. Rather, we give to fulfill the New Testament standard of generosity and love established in Christ Jesus’ death and resurrection.
