What Keeps Attenders from Giving?

Did you know if members of Christian churches gave 10% of their income back to the local church via the tithe, an additional 165 billion dollars would be available for Kingdom work?

Can you image the outreach that could happen with that amount of money? Relief from natural disasters, restoration of communities, Bible translations, food drives, churches planted…the list is endless.

So why don’t attenders fully embrace the biblical teaching of the tithe? Do they just lack the desire to give?

According to Dave Ramsey, best-selling author, speaker, and creator of Financial Peace University, people don’t give to the church because they are in bondage to debt. It’s not a lack of trust or desire—it’s a lack of income because all their money is going toward debt payments.
