The 5 reasons why people give to ministries are as follows:
1. To get a tax deduction
2. To get their "free love gift" (they're buying something)
3. To get their financial "harvest" by sowing their financial "seed" into a ministry (they want more money)
4. To get their healing by releasing their faith in the form of a cash donation (they want to buy a miracle - Did Jesus demand payment for healing?)
5. To give Jesus Christ glory by obeying His commandment to give without expecting anything in return.
Are you a giver or are you a getter?
"It is more blessed to give than to receive." (Acts 20:35b)
