Generosity another Free Gift

We are not under the law of tithing but the law of love. What we do with our money is not based on any law of tithing, but through generosity which flows from a heart of love.

Paul called this a “willing mind.” “For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man has, and not according to that he has not” (2 Corinthians 8:12). God does not need your money. You are not robbing God if you don’t pay tithes. Sadly, Pastors use this thinking to make you pay for sitting in the pew each Sunday.

That’s not how God does things. Jesus never collected a tithe from His disciples yet they were never without their needs met. Generosity is a grace that God has given us. Believers want to give. They see the needs around them and are generous. We see it not as paying back God for what He has done, but working with Him to display His love and grace for all men.
