In tithing 6 we established that money existed in the old testament, but THERE ARE NO SCRIPTURES THAT
INCLUDE MONEY IN THE TITHE.

So, where does money come in?  How much money should Christians give to the church?

Dueteronomy 12:6  … there bring your burnt offerings and sacrifices, your tithes (produce from the land)
and special gifts, WHAT YOU VOWED TO GIVE AND YOUR FREEWILL OFFERINGS and the firstborn of your
herds and flocks.

There are no specific scriptures that refer to how much money a person should give to God or the church.
I believe this is because it falls under the category of WHAT YOU HAVE VOWED TO GIVE AND YOUR FREE-
WILL OFFERING.

Here is a New Testament verse that refers to giving in general.

2 Corinthians 9:7  Each man SHOULD GIVE WHAT HE HAS DECIDED IN HIS HEART TO GIVE, not reluctantly
or under compulsion, FOR GOD LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER.

Your attitude when you give is more important than the amount you give.  WHETHER YOU GIVE SPECIAL
GIFTS, FOOD, MONEY OR YOUR TIME, YOU SHOULD GIVE WHATEVER YOU HAVE DECIDED IN YOUR HEART
TO GIVE.

A CHRISTIAN IS UNDER NO COMMAND FROM GOD TO GIVE TEN PERCENT TO THE CHURCH.  A CHRISTIAN
IS ONLY UNDER THE COMMAND TO GIVE WHAT THEY HAVE DECIDED IN THEIR OWN HEART.

Although there is no set amount a christian should give to the church, next week we will look at the heart of
a generous giver.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
