All That Matters Part 2
In the second installment of the All that Matters series, Pastor Joel teaches on living a life outside of ourselves. God has entrusted us all with riches in various ways, and He expects a lot from us in return. When we use those riches generously for others, we are showing the world what it really means to be a Christian. God wants us to have even more than we have now, but let us not forget what the more is for.

I. The Biblical Principle of Tithing

"First Fruits"
1. We aren’t on our own! We can TEST GOD and TRUST GOD!

2. God LOVES “FIRST” Faith. Do it first… trust God!

3. God will OPEN BLESSINGS and HOLD OFF the DEVOURER!

4. God owns it all, we are giving BACK what is his! It’s not a bill!

5. What if everyone tithed?
RELEVANT MAGAZINE: WHAT IF THE CHURCH TITHED?

HOW GIVING 10 PERCENT COULD CHANGE THE WORLD”:

The Church of today isn’t great at giving. 80% of givers are over 50 yrs old.

TITHERS MAKE UP ONLY 10-25 PERCENT of an average church

ONLY 5 PERCENT OF THE U.S. TITHES, with only 80% giving away 2% of income.

CHRISTIANS GIVE AT 2.5 PERCENT PER CAPITA, while 3.3% during great depression

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF BELIEVERS WERE TO INCREASE THEIR GIVING TO A MINIMUM OF 10 PERCENT?

THERE WOULD BE AN ADDITIONAL $165 BILLION FOR CHURCHES TO USE AND DISTRIBUTE. THE GLOBAL IMPACT WOULD BE PHENOMENAL.

HERE’S JUST A FEW THINGS THE CHURCH COULD DO WITH THAT KIND OF MONEY:

$25 BILLION COULD RELIEVE GLOBAL HUNGER, STARVATION AND DEATHS FROM PREVENTABLE DISEASES IN FIVE YEARS.

$12 BILLION COULD ELIMINATE ILLITERACY IN FIVE YEARS.

$15 BILLION COULD SOLVE THE WORLD’S WATER AND SANITATION ISSUES, SPECIFICALLY AT PLACES IN THE WORLD WHERE 1 BILLION PEOPLE LIVE ON LESS THAN $1 PER DAY.

$1 BILLION COULD FULLY FUND ALL OVERSEAS MISSION WORK.

$100 – $110 BILLION WOULD STILL BE LEFT OVER FOR ADDITIONAL MINISTRY EXPANSION.
