Giving isn t just something we do on Sunday morning it s a lifestyle.
We know we are supposed to give to the church. But when it comes down to it, Americans just aren t giving much compared with how much we have been given. Alarming new numbers show that the more we have, the less we give. But giving in the church is not just a financial problem it is a spiritual concern. When planning our budgets, it is important to understand not only how we should give but also why.
