Whatever is given to Christ is immediately touched with immortality.”

These are some of my favorite Bible verses about giving. There really are a ton of verses about giving in the Bible and these are just a select few of my favs. Again, if you have any that you want to share, please do so in the comments below…

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.

Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account.
