Recognize There Are Different Levels Of Givers

Not every congregant is in the same financial position. You also may have first-time attendees in the audience, try not to ostracize those who aren’t giving the 10%. Speak with a clear heart, acknowledging the diversity within your audience, and communicate the spiritual opportunity that generosity presents for all who follow Christ. By recognizing different levels of givers, you create an inclusive atmosphere that encourages everyone to participate in the spiritual journey of giving.

Don’t Let This Be A One-And-Done Sermon

For generosity to truly increase in your ministry – this giving sermon cannot be a one-time occurrence. Make it a point to regularly speak about money from the pulpit, and the significance that tithing has within an individual’s spiritual walk. Consistency in highlighting the importance of giving ensures that it becomes an ongoing and transformative aspect of your congregation’s journey with Christ.
