Here are some Bible verses that teach about giving to the Lord:
“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, … and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it” (Malachi 3:10).
The Lord in Malachi says that the giving of part of the riches gained leads to more gain. And He promises that He will certainly rebuke the devourer and make possible a greater increase.
“Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7).
“Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase” (Proverbs 3:9).
“There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that witholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself” (Proverbs 11:24, 25).
“It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).
“He that layeth up treasure for himself … is not rich toward God” (Luke 12:21).
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom” (Luke 6:38).
“Let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him” (1 Corinthians 16:2).
“Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord thy God which he hath given thee” (Deuteronomy 16:17).
The cheerful giving of tithes and offerings as wealth increases will prove a protection against the subtle temptations to selfishness and covetousness.
