Giving is one of the central themes of the Bible, and in the New Covenant, Yeshua spoke many times on the subject. To understand what it means to be a Believer is to understand what it is to be a giver. God doesn't need our money - He already owns it all. But when we willingly set aside the first part of our income for the synagogue, then our hearts will be turned toward Him (Matthew 6:21). Giving is also the antidote for materialism as the Bible says that by giving generously we are able to "take hold of the life that is truly life"; you aren't really living unless you are freely giving (I Timothy 6:19). Giving is the only area in the Bible where God invites us to "test Him" so by giving your tithe (First 10% of Your Gross Income) to God then He can bless you in ways that you never dreamed possible (Malachi 3:10)! And even when the stock market's down, you can make an investment that pays dividends for a lifetime and beyond. By investing in the life-changing efforts of the synagogue, you can leverage your money for eternity (I Timothy 6:7).
Donations for Etz Chayim Messianic Synagogue are tax-deductible.
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,² Says the Lord of hosts, ³If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:10
