II Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

Tithes and offerings:

As a new testament believer, what are your financial responsibilities? I will catch a bit of flack on this one; Your responsibility is to give cheerfully as God directs.

That it.

Your priority as a believer is to get close to God. Seek his face. Rejoice in his presence. If you can't give cheerfully, don't give!

God loves us more than we love ourselves. God is smarter than we are. God is wiser than we are.

There is a modern term called "stakeholder," that implies everyone affected by something. It is frequently carried to far and used as an excuse to claim renumeration without effort. With God we can be sure his love will lead us to a route that is best for all.

If we do as God directs, all stakeholders will get what is best for them. Follow God and it will yield maximum benefit for you, your family, the church; in effect, everyone.

God is big enough to take care of all the ramifications of our actions.

Trust God and his love.

Give as he directs.
