Honouring correct financial obligations build the work of God. Giving is a major part of your church membership. Thank God for the physical labours that you do in church: choir, intercession etc. but you must know the active role your finance is to play in the work of God. Money is one major thing that you must lay down as a church member. Everything that God built in the Bible were built by His people.
Your first financial obligation is your TITHE. It is not just a tenth but the first tenth of any income. Your tithe must go to your local church where your pastor ministers to you. That is, the church where you are receiving your divine nourishment and training for the kingdom. You cannot divide your tithe into three- your tithe must go to your storehouse where you are being fed. If you don't pay your tithe in your local church, you are not a member there and by extension, you have no divine portion there.
Your second financial obligation is your OFFERING. The offering is free will with no percentage or figure to it but it must be an act of honour, do it intelligently. Tithes and offerings are part and parcel of your relationship with God and a major way to build the work of God in your local church. You should not just do them as a dash but with understanding. There are promises and covenants of God for everyone that is faithful in doing these obligations.
PRAYER: Lord, I pray that the spirit of giving that came upon God's people in Exodus chapter 35 will rest upon me in Jesus’ name, Amen.
