Giving is Thanksgiving
Topic: Topical Scripture: 2 Corinthians 9:1–9:15
Synopsis: Financial giving is a difficult topic for churches. Some pastors never talk about money or offerings at all for fear of offending. Other pastors seem to preach on giving every week, even making great promises of financial breakthroughs to people who will donate to their church. Christians themselves seem confused about why to give. Some give in order to get something back from God. Others do it out of guilt or habit. Still others contribute money as a means of controlling a local church or boasting of their righteousness and generosity but biblical giving should be something else entirely. It should be an act of corporate worship.
