The truth about giving

  1. 1. The Truth About Giving God’s Dare to Give Scripturally
  2. 2. Most people view giving in a negative way Acts 20:35 4 to 6 percent vs. Most prosperous country Haggai 1:2-11 The more you give the happier you will be!
  3. 3. One Thing You Lack Vanderbilt Pierpont Black (1918-2007) Mark 10:17-22 What do we learn? 1. 2. A person can have everything else in his life completely in line with God’s word, but if his attitude toward money is wrong, he can still be lost. Improper giving is on the same level as murder and every other sin!
  4. 4. God Says Much about Money The most frequently discussed subjects in all of the Scriptures There are 89 chapters in gospels and the subject of giving is discussed 123 times. The Bible talks more about money than it does about faith, repentance, confession, baptism, church organization and qualifications of elders and deacons all combined.
  5. 5. God Says Much about Money One out of every six verses in the New Testament deals with money, and half of Jesus’ parables discuss the subject. Jesus’ words are very telling Luke 12:13-21 Matthew 25:14-30 Mark 12:41-44 Matthew 19:24
  6. 6. God Says Much about Money Think about this fact in light of other biblical teachings Hebrews 11:6 I Peter 3:21 I Corinthians 11:23-26
  7. 7. It is impossible for an honest-hearted truth seeker to read the Bible and come away with the idea that giving and stewardship are not important issues to God. In fact, so important is giving that Jesus explains it is one factor that can cause a person to be lost!
