Principles Of Giving January 26, 2014. Some churches (maybe you have heard them) teach giving as if to say, “Giving God money will make Him bless you with more money than you gave!” This is not the reason to give. In fact, it is idolatry. At Real Life, we view giving as a discipleship issue. It is a way for us to honor the Lord and trust Him in an area of life where we tend to hold on to…tightly. Listen in as we learn the joys of giving and see what happens as we step out and trust God to grow your faith by showing you He is who He says He is and He will do what He says He will do in your life.
