The Grace of Giving

Scriptural giving is one of the fundamentals of the Faith: (II Corinthians 8:7) “Therefore as ye abound in everything, in faith, utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in grace also.”

We are commanded to bring our gifts into the storehouse (common treasury of the church) upon the first day of the week; (I Corinthians 16:2) “Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as the Lord hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.”

Under grace we give, and do not pay the tithe: “Abraham gave a tenth part of all…Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.” (Hebrews 7:2,4) This was four hundred years before the law, and is confirmed in the New Testament.

Jesus said concerning the tithe: “These ye ought to done.” (Matthew 23:23)

In the New Testament the common treasury of the Lord is His churches: (Acts 4:34-35,37)
