Giving is an expression of a vibrant spirituality that says to God we trust you and are utterly dependent upon you. It is also a way to reflect the loving and generous character of our God to the world around us. Our generosity grows out of a recognition that everything we have is a gift from God entrusted to us for a time. Therefore we want to use the resources we are given wisely to participate in and celebrate what God is doing in the world.
In the Old Testament, believers were required to give a tenth of their income to the support of the ministry and the needs of the poor. The New Testament teaches that we should give as we are “able and even beyond [our] ability” (2 Corinthians 8:3). For some people 5% would be a sacrificial expression of generosity and for others 10% won’t be enough to express generosity. Everything in life that we want to excel in requires practice and giving is no different. Therefore, the tithe (10%) could be seen as a kind of minimum guideline that helps us practice for the times when we need to be really generous.
