2 Corinthians 9:6-7

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion.

What Would Happen If The Church Tithed?

How Giving 10% Could Change The World.

By Mike Holmes  -  Relevant Magazine (Online)  July 10, 2013

 

The church of today is not great at giving. This isn’t exactly news. But it is a statistical fact:

 

Tithers make up only 10-25% of a normal congregation.

 

Only 5% of the U.S. tithes, with 80% of Americans only giving 2% of their income.

 

Christians are only giving at 2.5 % per capita, while during the Great Depression they gave at a 3.3%.

 

Numbers like that can invoke a lot of guilt, which isn’t really the point. The larger point is what would happen if believers were to increase their giving to a minimum of, let's say, 10%. There would be an additional $165 billion for churches to use and distribute. The global impact would be phenomenal. Here's just a few things the Church could do with that kind of money:

 

$25 billion could relieve global hunger, starvation and deaths from preventable diseases in five years.

 

$12 billion could eliminate illiteracy in five years.

 

$15 billion could solve the world’s water and sanitation issues, specifically at places in the world where 1 billion people live on less than $1 per day.

 

$1 billion could fully fund all overseas mission work.

 

$100 – $110 billion would still be left over for additional ministry expansion.
