“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house” (Malachi 3:10).
One of the questions asked in Church that plays a great factor in giving is, “Where does the money go?” Now, to answer the question, the money goes to the Pastor, the Programs, the Property, and the Poor. Let me continue with the Programs.
The programs include the Equipping of Members. Members must be made aware of the fact that each believer has a specific calling from God on his or her life and a specific function to fulfill within the Church body. Paul wrote, “But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased Him” (1 Corinthians 12:18).
None of us are all we should be or could be. We are all in a developing stage. Some things about us have to be purged, proved, polished, and perfected. During this process, the leader walks beside them, works with them, and watches over them as they discover, decide, develop, and do their duty.
The preached messages, the purchased manuals, the prepared material, the provided ministries, and the personal meetings help believers to find, fill, fit, and fulfill their God-given ministries. That is where the money goes!
