What does the Word of God say about giving?


In Psalms 24:1 [NIV] we read that  God is the owner of ALL things.
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it;”   

 In Romans 11:35-36 [NIV] we read that God has NO needs.
“Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them? For from him and through him and for him are all things.
 To him be the glory forever! Amen.”

 In Philippians 4:19 [NIV] we understand that God meets our needs.
“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”

 In Philippians 4:17 [NIV] we read that the opportunity to give to the Lord's work is an opportunity to be blessed of God.
Not that I desire your gifts; what I desire is that more be credited to your account.”

 In 2 Corinthians 8:20-21 [NIV] we read that we are expected of God to be good stewards with the gifts of His people.
We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift.  For we are taking pains to do what is    right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of man.”
