Is there truly any Instruction in the Bible as to how much we should give in the offering plate? Or how often we should give? I know many may run to 1 Corinthians 16 and say, "we should be giving weekly." But does that verse really apply to our giving to the local Church that we attend? From what I see, it was concerning an offering for a Church in another location, not the local Church at Corinth itself. 2 Corinthians 9 may be another place one turns to, yet, like the passage in the first epistle, this is also speaking of a collection for another Church in need. Nearest I can find is the believers in Acts 4 selling land to help those in need. But that was not because of command, nor is there any indication that this was a continuing event. Shouldn't our giving be based on when we see the need?
