The Q: “How much should I give to the church?” The A: “Give whatever you want!”
In a way, New Testament giving is really that simple. That said, Scripture has quite a bit to say about what and how we should want to give. It shamelessly appeals to the Christian’s love for fellow believers in need, their appreciation for the work of the church, and their gratitude for all God has done, namely in Christ. And Second Corinthians, chapters eight and nine are ground zero for the call to this freeing brand of happy generosity in local church giving. Here, we see ten distinct aspects of New Testament church giving, some very practical and all deeply spiritual.
