2. WHAT YOU GIVE OR DON’T GIVE TO GOD
The second biggest of the 5 things to never tell your pastor is that you don’t tithe or give to God because… (fill in the blank). What you give or don’t give to God is private between you and God and every pastor is happy with that arrangement. Generosity with God comes from a growing relationship with him where we are learning to depend on God and doing everything God’s way. Not everyone is at a place where they trust God’s word, especially with their money. That’s okay, nobody is trying to change that. Tithing (or giving 10% of our income to God) is not an expense for followers of Jesus. It is the way God has created for us to honor and prioritize him in our lives, in regards to money. God will bless everyone who honors him with their tithe, far more than the 10% you return to him. This is God’s method of financing his work on earth and he always makes sure that he gives you more than you give him.
