Money and church can be a touchy issue – but it doesn’t have to be. We don’t give because God needs our money, and we don’t give because the church needs our money. It’s much bigger than that. We give because God asked us to, and following through shows that we trust Him.
God knows that your loyalty is found where your money is (Matthew 6:19-21). And because God wants to be first in our lives, he asks us to trust Him with our money.
For Christians, tithing (a word meaning ‘tenth’) is a starting point. Tithing was introduced in the Old Testament and involves giving the first 10% of our income back to God. If you call Trilogy your home, we encourage you to give generously, knowing that your money is being used to support the mission of Jesus Christ – both here in the Metroplex and around the world. The early church in the New Testament practiced a new method of radical generosity and will move us from asking, "How much should I give?" to "How much do I need to keep?"
