1 Corinthians 16, Paul taught the church about Tithes and Offerings. Now here are the directions about the money you are collecting to send to the Christians in Jerusalem; (and, by the way, these are the same directions I gave to the churches in Galatia). On every Lord’s Day each of you should put aside something from what you have earned during the week, and use it for this offering. The amount depends on how much the Lord has helped you earn. Don’t wait until I get there and then try to collect it all at once. When I come I will send your loving gift with a letter to Jerusalem, to be taken there by trustworthy messengers you yourselves will choose. And if it seems wise for me to go along too, then we can travel together. I am coming to visit you after I have been to Macedonia first, but I will be staying there only for a little while. It could be that I will stay longer with you, perhaps all winter, and then you can send me on to my next destination. So much is happening, but there are many enemies. Keep your eyes open for spiritual danger; stand true to the Lord; act like men; be strong; and whatever you do, do it with kindness and love. FRIENDS, GOD WANTS CHRISTIANS TO BE BLESSED BY GIVING TITHES AND OFFERINGS WHICH OPENS THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN. AS MUCH AS YOU GIVE, GOD GIVES BACK TO YOU PRESSED DOWN AND OVERFLOWING. Luke 6:38 (TLB). For if you give, you will get! Your gift will return to you in full and overflowing measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over. Whatever measure you use to give large or small will be used to measure what is given back to you.”
