People Vote with Their $$$


I have discovered in every area of life that people vote with their money. It is no different in church life. Here is what they are saying if they are giving:

  • I believe in the mission of the organization.
  • I believe in the leadership of the organization. 
  • I trust that my money is going to good use and will not be wasted or mishandled.

It stands to reason that they are saying the opposite if they do not give or are not willing to invest in what is happening. 

I have seen the craziest things done with church money:

  • Designate it to the electric bill so the preacher doesn’t get any toward his salary.
  • Other things that I will refrain from mentioning. You get the point.

What does it say about us when it comes to giving? We’ll let Scripture speak for itself.

  • “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew‬ ‭6:21‬ 

Giving is a reflection of our heart! Where is your heart today?

Author: Matthew Winters (The Comeback Pastor)

Born and raised in Portsmouth, VA, I eventually landed in upstate SC because when God calls I move. I gave my life to Christ in 1987 and surrendered to the call to ministry in 1997. I am a three-time graduate from Liberty University and Theological Seminary: BS in Religion (2003), the MA in Religion (Leadership concentration - 2006), and the Master of Divinity (Pastoral Ministries - 2013). I have served as a worship leader and senior pastor in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia since 1996. After experiencing a divorce, God graciously gave me my wife, Jennifer, whom I married in September 2015. Between the two of us, we have 6 children. I am the Lead/Founding Pastor of Overcomers Church in Walhalla, SC, a brand new church plant that is helping those who have been overcome by life to become Overcomers in Christ. Jennifer and I both love people and long to see them enter into a relationship with Christ and walk in the power of His Spirit. I pray that these thoughts I share will challenge and inspire you to greater heights and deeper depths for the glory of Christ.
