Why give money to charity?
The Bible is a kind of instruction from God on how a person should live on earth.
Through her He teaches us:
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, shaken together, shaken together and overflowing, they will pour into your bosom; For with what measure you use, it will be measured to you again" (Luke 6:38).
Here God teaches a person to share, this must be done because any of us can find ourselves in a difficult life situation, and if you share money in a difficult moment with another person, then they will help you when you have difficulties.
Why give exactly 10% of income?
Bring all the tithes to the house of storage, that there may be food in My house, and although in this test Me, says the Lord of hosts: shall I not open the windows of heaven for you and pour out blessings on you to excess? |Malachi 3:8,10|
This is what God says to do through His word – Bring all the tithes. It is 10 percent of your income that should be given to the church, or to help others.
The rich know this rule and give 10% or more of their income to charity every month.
And according to the promise of God – he helps such people in their affairs. That’s why the rich are getting richer and richer. By giving 10% of their income, they seem to become partners with God. He needs generous people who are willing to share money with others. Such people can be conduits through which God will direct large sums of money for good deeds and help those in need.
10 percent of income is not much – but in return you get:
1 God becomes your partner in business, and He knows everything. He knows which stocks will rise in price, which business idea will work, where the gold, oil, and so on….
2 You will be lucky in money matters.
3 Your home, you, your family, your business, your money will be protected by God.
And much more….
10 percent of your income is small compared to what you get in return.
Where to give money?
Here you must decide for yourself. But, money can be given only to those people who are not able to earn it themselves, and these are sick children, the disabled, the elderly.
It is not necessary to give money to healthy people, but to the poor. They themselves are to blame, they are simply lazy and do not want to work. This will not benefit them, not you.
If you decide to give money, then God will guide you and tell you where to transfer 10% of the income.
