Why We Give
The topic of our treasure is a very important subject in the Bible. Our money and possessions are our treasures. Sixteen of Christ’s thirty-eight parables speak about how people should handle earthly treasure. In fact, our Lord taught more about such treasure (one out of every ten verses in the Gospels,) than about heaven and hell combined. The entire Bible contains more than two thousand references to wealth and property, twice as many as the total references to faith and prayer. What we do with the things God has given us is very important to Him.
