“SAM”ANTICS

“Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also: on the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come”. (1 Corinthians 16:1-2)

 

First Corinthians answers questions the church there had asked Paul about in a letter. Chapter 7 answers questions about marriage; chapters 12-14 deal with questions asked about worship and spiritual gifts

 

Chapter 16 begins with an answer to how the church in Corinth was to handle a promise to raise money to help brethren in other localities. Paul’s response to this matter provides us with several insights about our own giving. Note a few of the guidelines Paul offers:

 

  1. Their giving was expected (“given orders”)

  2. They were to give on the first day of the week (most likely because that is when the church would be together in worship and thus the most convenient time to bring in their offering)

  3. They were to give as they prospered ( in a manner that truly represented their income

  4. They were to give regularly so there would be no need for last minute gatherings (collections).

Paul amplifies this topic in 2 Corinthians 8 & 9 where he deals more with the frame of mind or attitude that should accompany our giving.
