David Coss speaks about Tithes and Offerings as we continue with our Generous series this week. Tithes are the taxes we owe to God and in return, we have His protection over our life. Offerings are the seeds we sow which God can increase into so much more. Knowing this, wouldn’t we want to become a cheerful and generous giver?
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
– 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (ESV)
