GivingWhat Does the Bible say about Stewardship?
The Bible teaches that people who take seriously the stewardship of all that God gives them have these characteristics:
- They give through the Church (Malachi 3:10),
- liberally (Luke 6:38),
- sacrificially (2 Corinthians 8:1-4),
- cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:7),
- and regularly (1 Corinthians 16:2)
What do Presbyterians Believe about Stewardship?
Giving has always been a mark of Christian commitment and discipleship. The ways in which a believer uses God's gifts of material goods, personal abilities, and time should reflect a faithful response to God's self-giving in Jesus Christ and Christ's call to minister to and share with others in the world. Tithing is a primary expression of the Christiandiscipline of stewardship. Those who follow the discipline of Christian stewardship will find themselves called to lives of simplicity, generosity, honesty, hospitality, compassion, receptivity, and concern for the earth and God's creatures.
