Be faithful in tithing to God. Give your tithe to your church in support of God’s work, and ministers of God who give their full time for God’s work.
Pastors who want to quit the ministry in discouragement should ask God for the strength to continue. And also teach their members this series on Christian Giving and tithing.

Worship is an expression of love, and worshipers walk in this realm of love. In this realm, generosity and cheerful giving to God hold sway.

Beware of charlatans who try to rob God’s people under the guise of giving to Him. Giving to God is not an occasion to borrow.

You don’t buy God’s blessings with money. However, the use of money demonstrates value and sends signals to God regarding your preference. Therein lies the power of cheerful generosity.
God prefers those who give liberally and cheerfully to Him. This preference manifests as unexplained favours in their lives – they are the true blessings of giving.
