Then you shall call, and the Lord willanswer; you shall cry, and he will say, ‘Here I am.’ If you take away the yoke from yourmidst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, if you pour yourself out for thehungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness andyour gloom be as the noonday. ...Psalm 50:23The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his wayrightly I will show the salvation of God!”Job 3:14With kings and counselors of the earth who rebuilt ruins for themselves, The Bible and CharityThe Bible teaches that everything that we own comes from God:The earth is the Lord’s, and every thing in it, the world, and all who live in it. Psalm 24:1For Christians, this means not only that they need to be grateful for everything they have,but that they should also be ready to part with any of their possessions if it is Gods will.However, Christians are also taught to give routinely - they should regularly set aside aspecific amount for charity:A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees,belongs to the LORD; it is holy to the LORD... The entire tithe of the herd and flock—every tenth animal that passes under the shepherds rod—will be holy to the LORD.Leviticus 27:30, 32
Some Christians keep strictly to the 10% laid out in the Old Testament. However, Jesuswas wary of people who were legalistic, and taught that all giving should be done with ajoyful heart.What sorrow awaits you Pharisees! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income fromyour herb gardens, but you ignore justice and the love of God. You should tithe, yes, but donot neglect the more important things. Luke 11:42Paul also warned against following the letter of the law without actually caring for others.The most important thing is to love others:And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I deliver my body to be burned, butdo not have love, it profits me nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:3As well as giving to charity simply to follow the letter of the law, some people give tocharity just to look good. Jesus warned against this:Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will losethe reward from your Father in heaven.When you give to someone in need, don’t do as thehypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their actsof charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. Butwhen you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand isdoing.Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.Matthew 6:1-4Paul reinforced the idea that you should give out of love, with a cheerful heart. Histeaching also suggests that Christians should not keep strictly to 10% in their giving - theyshould think carefully about it and give as much as they can afford.You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or inresponse to pressure. For God loves a person who gives cheerfully. 2 Corinthians 9:7
