  • Giving to God (Part II)
  • Yesterday, I continued our financial stewardship sermon series, “Giving to God.” The message was “What should I give to God?” I offered three answers to that question.

    I. Give God the tithe.

    A. Tithing is an expression of devotion (Gen. 14:20; 28:18-22).

    B. Tithing is an act of worship (Lev. 27:30; Mal. 3:6-10).

    C. Tithing is a spiritual discipline (Matt. 23:23; 1 Co. 16:2).

    D. Tithing is a statement of faith (Mal. 3:10).

    II. Give God an offering.

    A. Offerings are freewill gifts (2 Co. 9:7)

    B. Offerings are declarations of thanksgiving (Ps. 50:14).

    C. Offerings are investments in the work of God (Phil. 4:18).

    III. Give God yourself (2 Co. 8:1-5; Rom. 12:1-2).
