The best way that I can think of to address the need for more consistent giving in our church is to just make it plain. It takes a village to raise a child and it takes the entire church for us to pay our bills. As I have reminded you in the past, it is not equal giving, but it is equal sacrifice. Paul said to the Corinthian church, “Upon the first day of the week, let everyone of you lay by him in store, as God has prospered high, that there be no gatherings when I come.” In essence, each one of us is called to do our part in participating in the process. If you are a member and you’re not tithing, you are in disobedience to the word of God.
