It’s What We Do! Pastor Tim continues our Summer series with an important message on giving financially to God.
- We consume
- We lack
- We fear
- We consume
WE GIVE GENEROUSLY.
2 Corinthians 9:7-9 (NLT)
You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”
And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.
As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.”
WHAT GOD DOES…
GOD MULTIPLIES ABUNDANTLY.
2 Corinthians 9:10-11 (NLT)
“For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.
Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God.”

TITHING BREAKS THE CYCLE OF SCARCITY AND CREATES A NEW CYCLE OF SUPPLY
First 10% of everything we receive—belongs to God.
THE POWER OF THE TITHE
1) THE TITHE TEACHES US PUT GOD FIRST.
- I’d have to rearrange my whole life—YES.
- I’d have to give up something—YES.
- This would stretch my faith—YES!
It takes faith to give first. It doesn’t take faith to give last.
2) THE TITHE BUILDS OUR FAITH.
Malachi 3:10-11 (NLT)
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
- Give me your first and best, I’ll bless the rest!
- 90% with God’s blessings goes further than 100% without.
- Can’t afford—Never will be able to—until you do.
3) THE TITHE PROVIDES FOR THE WORK OF GOD’S CHURCH.
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house.
We are leading people to become FULLY DEVOTED followers of Christ!
We GIVE—God MULTIPLIES—Builds FAITH—WE GIVE.
