Here’s what it takes to surpass a $100,000 a year church budget:
It takes 34 families or individuals who have a “take home pay” of $30,000 and give 10% based on that.
That’s $62.50 a week, or $250 a month.
34 (families or individuals) x $250 (monthly) x 12 (months) = $102,000.
Not 100 families or individuals, but 34.
Not giving 10% gross, but giving 10% net.
Imagine what would happen if it was 100 families or individuals? 200?
Trust me, it’s about more than math. Numbers represent people and generous giving always reveals heart change.
“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” – Jesus
Why is this always so hard for us? One penny for every ten.
We could start a lot of new churches and fund a lot of great ministries by just applying this simple, Biblical principle.
No need to be all legalistic about it – I’m just sayin’.
