At LPBC we believe You Can't Out give God
The Bible says in Matthew 6:24, "No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money"
This means the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus is money. Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things.
Not having cash or check on hand doesn't have to hold you back from giving. You can give online. You can even schedule your Giving. We know life is busy these days, isn't it? Between paying bills. running errands, and remembering birthdays and anniversaries, giving can easily get put on the back burner. The truth is, it doesn't have to be this way. You can literally schedule your next tithe or offering in two minutes. Give it a try.
Malachi 3:10, "Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need."
At LPBC we teach the tithe and offering. So what is Tithing? What is an offering?
A tithe (which just means "tenth") is defined as the first 10% of a person's income. The Bible says we can test God on this. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. An offering is giving above and beyond the tithe for God's purposes. We know tithing is a huge step of obedience, but you're not in this alone! We also know that giving an offering may be something you are not able to do. But as we give God's way He will bless you and maybe someday you will look back and see what you thought was impossible, was possible with God.
Remember we can't out give God and there is no organization with more potential to change the world than His church!
