Americans say they like to give, but is that the reality? We know that today’s post-modern generation gains more satisfaction from a job that gives back and creates high self-worth, and that long term careers are on the decline. Therefore, it makes sense that giving would be different today than it was thirty years ago in the church. This infographic touches on this, and how giving is affected today in 2015.
After viewing the infographic and reading this article from Barna.org on giving, consider these questions about your church.
- Who is giving at my church?
- What are they giving to?
- Why are they giving?
- Are they giving, or are they tithing (and what is the difference)?
- How are we making it easy for people to give faithfully?
