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 HEART TO GIVE.

Although God has no command to how much a Christian should give, the following three scriptures show
the heart of generous givers.

The Macedonian Christians to the distressed Jerusalem Christians.

2 Corinthians 8:2  … their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity.  For I
testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability.

Believers that claimed none of their possessions as their own.

Acts 4:34  For from time to time those who owned lands and houses sold them, brought the money from
the sales and put it at the apostles feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need.

A poor widow gave two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny.

Mark 12:44  “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all others.  They all
gave out of their wealth;  but she, out of her poverty, put in everything- all she had to live on.

These three verses describe the heart of generous givers.  Christians should be generous givers when people
are in need.

Next week, we will review more scriptures on being a generous giver and how it benefits your life.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
