4 Stages Of Giving At BIBC:
If you don’t worship through giving, start. Make your first financial gift, whether it’s a lot or a little.
If you’re an irregular giver, commit to giving regularly – perhaps every Sunday or once per paycheck. 10% of your income is a good target, but if the best you can do right now is, say, 6%, then give 6% regularly and work toward 10% down the road.
Above and Beyond giving
Once you are regularly giving a portion of your income, consider giving above and beyond to the mission and vision God has entrusted to us. This might be a large one-time gift or smaller, regular above and beyond giving.
Once you’re giving above and beyond, consider becoming a “multiplier” by sharing your testimony of God’s faithfulness in your finances, or consider becoming a financial coach/leader during a Life Group Semester.
Although everything we have belongs to God anyway, God himself is a far more lavish, sacrificial giver to us than we could ever be in return. The death and resurrection of Jesus represent the most generous gift ever given — when the King of Glory gave up everything in order to reconcile us to God. Giving cheerfully, sacrificially, and consistently to this King is a part of our worship.
“…though [Jesus] was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9).
We give as an act of worship and thankfulness for the grace God has shown us through Christ. “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
—2 Corinthians 9:7
