Week 3: Don’t Substitute
Genesis 4:1-5 NLT, Mark 12:41-44 NLT
Do we have to give our first 10% of income?
- Cain’s gift was some of his crops. It didn’t require or show his faith.
- Abel’s gift was the first and best of his flock. This showed his faith and was accepted. (Hebrews 11:4)
- Jesus was excited for the widow because her giving showed she was putting her trust in God versus just giving out of her excess.
Giving the first 10% of my income shows God exactly how much I trust Him.
“Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over.” Proverbs 3:9-10 MSG
