The answer starts with an understanding that everything you have is a gift from God. The Bible tells us that God has invited us to be His stewards and to manage wisely His resources for His purposes. When you realize that God owns it all, then your giving is simply returning the first portion of what He provides back to Him. Your giving is first and foremost not to the church, but to God, who uses His church to make a difference in the Kingdom.
