I’ve had multiple conversations, with both Christian and non-Christian, about what the Bible says regarding money. I’ve heard people say: the church just wants your money, tithing isn’t in the New Testament, and I won’t give because I don’t trust my church. Maybe in your community, someone mentioned how that church makes too much money to be a “real church.” Have you ever overheard one of these statements?
Why do people think the church is just after their money and how do we instead explain we’re after their heart?
Below is part 3!
3. They don’t know what you’re doing with the money.
What if I told you, if you give me $1 I will instantly give you $100? You’d probably give me more than just $1, wouldn’t you? It would be a great investment, right?
Now, how much would you give for someone to be saved? What if I told you, when you give $100 someone in your community would get saved? Would you be willing to sacrifice? Now I know this isn’t the way it works, but just go with me for a moment.
If I give to your church, is my money making a kingdom impact? If I give to your church, does it directly impact the lives of people in my community for the better?
Some people in your church might have no idea what you’re doing with the money they give. You should take a moment to share with them exactly what happens when they give to your ministry and the impact it has. Connect their giving dollars to life change because without their gifts, you aren’t able to solely focus on ministry.
