We can give to many great things in this world, and as a community, we encourage people to give generously whenever and wherever they can. But the practice of giving regularly to your church home is a special and powerful type of giving which we invite members of Syndal Baptist Church to participate in.
In both the Old and New Testaments of the bible, we are taught that money (or 'mammon') is one of the most common competitors against God for people's attention, faith and hope.
When we look at the world around us, we know this is still the case. It is an easy thing to rely on money to make us feel safe, secure and like everything is in control. Money can easily become a substitute for God in our lives.
That is why the practice of the tithe (or offering) is one of the most beautiful, powerful and underappreciated spiritual disciplines we can follow.
It is a practice introduced by God during the formation of his people in the Old Testament, and when Jesus' teaching in the New Testament broadened the call for generosity, tithing remains a practice we still utilize to help keep our hearts on track with God.
It is a choice we make weekly, fortnightly or monthly to surrender part of what we earn back to God, for his use and to contribute to his ongoing work.
It is a practical act of worship and trust, declaring that our security, hope and trust isn't in money, but in our God.
It's also an awesome way to be part of the work God is doing through your church community to support, care for and grow the people you church connects with every week.
Giving to the offering isn't always easy. In fact, sometimes it feels like the hardest choice to make.
Yet, in those moments where we put faith before fear, God works in a unique and powerful way.
