3 Ways to Support Our Church
Throughout the Bible, Old and New Testaments, the people of God have been required give of their money and/or material possessions for various purposes. In the Old Testament the children of Israel, under the Law of Moses were required to give a tithe (tithe = 10%) of their grain, the fruit of their trees, and/or of their flocks or herds. In the case of the flocks and herds the cattle were sent through a shoot with a rod over it, and every tenth animal that passed under the rod was taken as the offering. The giver, in this case, was not permitted to ask whether or not the animals that were chosen were good or bad, they simply met their obligation and went on their way.
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down,
and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom”
