How do you get people to donate to the church, to fund missions, to serve the Lord? There are three main funding methods. The first is to force people, to beat them up verbally, to manipulate their emotions, to threaten and coerce them into giving. The second way is to fool people. This is what the health, wealth, and prosperity preachers do. They promise people that if they give a dollar, God will give them back a million dollars. The third way is freely. This is where we make the need known but then leave it to God to work in the heart so that it is given for the right reasons and in the right way. We’ve got a beautiful example of that in Exodus 35.
