Tithing & Generosity
Everything belongs to God. He created it. He owns it.
Understanding and coming to terms with this important Biblical truth moves us from the position of owner to the position of manager or steward.
Once we make this shift in our thinking, we are in a better place to begin to practice true generosity.
When we loosen the grip of ownership so that we can become more faithful stewards of all of life, we begin to glorify God in a new way.
