At Truth in Love Ministries we believe it is imperartive that you catch the vision and the importance of systematic, spontaneous and sacrificial giving.
Systematic giving is your weekly tithes and offerings- it is what you do automatically. You don’t have to be prompted or pushed and you have matured to a level of faith that causes you to give by your very nature. God’s church has financial obligations in which every member should share. The church is maintained through members’ tithing. The word “tithe” literally means “a tenth”. Tithing is a biblical principle in which believers return to God the first fruits of their labor. The amount given is ten percent of all income (or a dime out of every dollar).
Spontaneous giving is having sensitivity to the leading of the Spirt to give something you didn’t plan to. It is sowing an unusual seed just because He told you to. You can’t explain it, just like most things about God; you just know it’s Him.
Sacrificial giving is when you absolutely trust God with more than you can afford to give or at least right up your financial limits. When you hear God whisper to you to sow an unusual seed, do it! Trust Him and prepare for financial return in your life.
Remember all that we have and all that we are belongs to God…we are “giving back” to God a portion of what He has given to us or with what He has entrusted to us.
The purpose of the Tithe: Provision for the ministry, a vehicle for funding the vision, help meet the needs of the poor, proves God, propels our faith and proves our faith.
The power of Tithing breaks spiritual and financial strongholds, gains supernatural favor from the Lord, breaks generaltional curses of poverty and lack and deepens our relationship with the Father.
Giving is a Matter of the heart
“Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
2 Corinthians 9:7
“For where your treasure is, there you will be also.” Luke 12:34
“And God, who knows the heart, testified to them the Holy Spirit, just as He also did us.” Act 15:8 Promises are contingent upon principles. We shouldn’t claim God’s promises and then fail to apply godly principles. We can’t expect to reap God’s blessings if we have not sown.
Thank you for your generosity!
