Just One Reason is Enough
| Why should we study
about money and giving? Why is it so important? The answer is because it
is a Bible subject and that alone justifies and necessitates the study.
There is more material on the subject of money, the right attitude toward
it, the proper use of it than there is on the Lord's Supper, baptism,
marriage and many other subject we correctly consider important.
First Corinthians 9: 11, 12, "If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it s great thing if we shall reap your carnal things? If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power, but suffer all things lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ."
While Paul did not take financial support from the Corinthian church he does show that such support is proper and money is one means of getting the gospel to the world. What more reason does one need to give?
