Why Do We Give?
God doesn’t want something from you; He wants something for you. More than you could ask for or imagine. And we do, too. We want you to be financially free. We believe the top competitor for our devotion to Jesus is money (Matthew 6:24). Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things.
We believe you can’t outgive God, so when you’re trusting Him with your tithes and offerings we know that He will bless the rest (Proverbs 3:9-10 and Malachi 3:10-12). We think Christians should be the most generous people (2 Corinthians 9:6) on earth to support worthy causes, and there is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church (Ephesians 3:10)!

Should I still give something even if I can't give 10%?
Absolutely!! At Thrive we believe God wants each of us to give not because He wants something from us, but because He wants to do something in our hearts. We give because Jesus gave! With that in mind we encourage people to start somewhere with their giving and see how God moves in their lives.
