New Testament principles teach that everything belongs to God and we are responsible for how we use one hundred percent of God’s money (Luke 16:11-12). Our giving should be sacrificial. It should cost us something (Mark 12:41-44; Hebrews 13:16; 2 Samuel 24:24). The amount we give should be determined prayerfully in submission to God. It is not the percentage that God looks at, but the heart.
There are many competing groups asking for your gifts. Many represent very excellent causes and are worthy of your support. The offerings in the New Testament, however, were collected in the churches (1 Corinthians 16:1; 2 Corinthians 8:1). The church is the instrument God has chosen to do His work (Matthew 16:18). The church is to provide an accountability structure to ensure the giving is used properly (Acts 4:35; 1 Timothy 5:17).
