My Giving In Church Vs My Giving To Others: What Is The Cause?? by Sermwell(m): 10:28am On Feb 21
I have over time realised that I find it difficult to give larger amount of money in church. Most times I struggle to give #50 or even #20 as offerings in church. But I have always find it easy to give large sums to persons in need in and outside the church.

Quite recently, a brother accosted me in church with some challenges about his wife's childbirth in the hospital, I went with him and paid off 45k to discharge them. Aside him, I have given up to 100k (if not more) to persons in need this month alone.

But I struggle so hard to give larger sums in church. Even today, I gave #40 as offering in church when I actually have larger denominations in my wallet.

Funny enough, on my way out of the church today, I met my school mate and we went to my house together, although he didn't state categorically that he's in need, but he told me how he has been out of job for 3 months now. After the visit, I gave him 10k from the same wallet I gave #40 as offering in church today.

My question is, what could possibly be wrong with my giving in church? Is it trust issues or I consider it better to give to persons instead of the church?? Is anything wrong with my style of giving??

I need answers please!!

I sense lack of trust because if you trusted the leaders to be able to use the money judiciously as you do, you wouldn't have any reason to be less generous to them as you do to others.

I don't think you should be concerned though since you are helping those who are needy including some members of the church because that's actually the whole point of giving - to help the poor and needy, not the rich. That's why after giving in the Bible, the disciples distributed it to the members of the church according to their needs. Acts 4:34-35

I think what you should be more concerned about is why you've remained with a church where you so distrust the leaders?

May God reward you for your kindness and generosity to the poor and needy. Amen!

God bless.

Giving to people is also the same as giving to God..but if you must go to Church you also have to give a tangible offering to the Lord..

mehhnn!....


Giving to people in need is one thing on it own...

and the best form of giving on this planet.. is giving where it is needed...

Your doing the right thing..

but let me help you sir..

You don't give to church..
as in don't see it as giving to church (the administrators of the denomination)

but when you give in church, give to God, not as a gift, but as a sacrifice, and if it is a sacrifice to the most high, it should be a sacrifice worthy gift...

If Solomon gave to people more than he gave God, he won't be the wisest man that ever liveth.

Giving to the needy/poor is also GIVING but can not take the place of Giving to God.

Don't judge what the church leaders do with your offering, which is not commensurate with the way you have been blessed.

There are different types of offerings, give to God what is His and to Caesar what is Caesar's.

There is nothing wrong, we are not suppose to have lavish church's buildings since the world is temporary, why build exotic church's that can be destroyed here, but giving to those in need is really very kind, besides its the people going to the church's that matters, not the structure, also the welfare of those who work within the church's

Well this is my poor opinion, Another person may have a better understanding

That you're philanthropic doesn't mean you shouldn't give proper offerings in church. Change your ways.

If I may ask, do you pay your tithes?

First,it's nothing wrong with you. Just your mindset. Next time you are giving in church, have a good mental picture of whom you are giving to which is God - the owner and provider of your wealth.

Give with a large and grateful heart,without reserve.

Is it not from these same tithe and offering Johnson Suleman bought 3rd private jet in a pandemic.

@OP if it is possible, stop giving offerings. It goes straight to the pastor pulse. No accountability.

Definitely trust issue but you forgot that the chairs, fan and sound system that gives you comfort in church was bought from someone's offering
