GIVERS GAIN

GIVING DOCUMENTARY
A documentary that highlights on the law of giving to God. This is an exciting documentary that looks not only at the money aspect, but other dimensions such as time, resources, using of gifting/talent to serve God among others.

Giving is a requirement that Christians should observe in their lives however there is a large looming concern as to how much is given to God. Do we give 10% of the gross income or net income, do we give 15% that is 10% tithing and 5% offerings as the Jews of old did. What about time how much time should we give to serving the Lord?
Has the Old Testament been overridden by the New Testament? Should we do away with tithing and give love gifts instead? Should we give our tithes and offerings and seed offerings to the Christian media houses or the church? Those are the many questions we wish to answer in this documentary.

What are the testimonies that have come out as a result of being obedient to God?
Have people’s lives changed and what are the attitudes that come with giving? Are we GivinG to God or the pastor (in the case of money hungry pastors and other religious affiliates)………..

Where people have failed to give what can they do to recover for lost time?
