If you are a pastor how would you answer the question “Are your people willing to grow in their giving?” If you are a lay person how do you think your pastor would respond?
I have asked this question many times over the past 13 years and the typical response is something along the lines of “I don’t know. We have some families growing in their giving each year but I don’t know if all of the families in our church are willing or capable of growing in their giving.”
What I usually find after digging in a little deeper is the simple fact that most pastors have never intentionally asked their people the question “Will You Grow?”
So, my question for pastors and church leaders today is “When will you ask your people if they are willing to grow in their giving?” One thing I know for sure; they will not grow in their giving unless you invite them to do so.
