Teasing The Tithe
God desires for His people to grow in faith, and He provides disciplines as tools to experience that growth.
 
The discipline of giving is a helpful tool for growth because it helps us to build a deeper trust in God than in our material possessions. God is more concerned with the attitude in which we give than in the amount. If the attitude is right the amount will fall in line. When we focus too much on the amount, it may infect our attitude.

    One tool or discipline God has given us for growth is something that we can never do alone because Christianity was never meant to be a lone adventure -- Community.
     
    Community helps us grow as we surround ourselves with strategic relationships that receive the benefit of others pouring into our lives, while pouring in the lives of others.

    In Matthew 6, Jesus, in teaching the people on the mount about prayer, shares three things about how to effectively pray.

    Developing A Taste For God’s Word
    God desires for us to grow spiritually. He has given us his Word to accomplish that very desire. However, the Word can only fulfill its goal when we get close enough to expose our lives to its influence.
     
    Using a metaphor of eating, this message explores how to develop a fuller appetite for God's word.
