Unselfish Generosity - Basic Practices #7

Another dynamic of the early church was the voluntary, sacrificial giving of those who had extra financially and materially for those who were in need within the church community. This kind of generosity was a fruit of the unity the church experienced because of their shared faith in Jesus. How do we form the kind of unity that leads to this kind of generosity today?


Proportional Generosity


The church has constantly wrestled with the question of how much are followers of Jesus required to give by God. In this message we trace the biblical passages regarding tithing to try to answer this question. In the end we are called to give in proportion to what we receive. Generosity is not found in an amount, but in the proportion of what we spend and keep for ourselves compared to what we give for the sake of God and others.
