Hall Powell Asks, “Why is Money Important to God?” is a veteran minister and expert fundraiser’s take on the significant role finances play in a Christian’s life. Here’s what Hall has to share:
The Purpose of Money
The Holy Spirit, the author of the Bible, devotes twice as many verses to money (about 2,350 of them) than to faith and prayer combined.
Why would Jesus say more about money that heaven or hell? 15% of His recorded words were spent on this one subject.

Two Kingdoms: Heaven & Earth: – He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. Jim Elliott
Well, we have already covered much of this. In Mal.3:10-12 we read that if we give the tithe to the Lord He will return to us more than we can take in. In the N.T. we see the same promise in Luke 6:38 and 2 Corinthians 9: 8-11.
Randy Alcorn is his book The Treasure Principle, says this: “When it comes to giving, churches operate under a ‘don’t ask, don’t tell policy.’ We lack communication, accountability, and modeling. Its as if we have an unspoken agreement: ‘I won’t talk about it if you won’t, so we can go right on living as we are. Think about it. How does a young Christian in the church learn to give? Where can he or she go to see what giving looks like in the life of a believer captivated by Christ?”
How To Give:
Remember that the Bible tells us that the tithe belongs to the Lord (Lev.27:30).
