What would you do if you had a few extra dollars to invest? Would you place it in a bank account that paid no interest, or put it in a CD, Mutual Fund, or Money Market that made money? I’m guessing you would put that extra money in an investment vehicle that would pay you at least some interest, if not the one that paid the most interest possible.
If we would do that with our money for earthy things, why wouldn’t we also do that for eternal things? We give to lots of different causes, but how much of our post-tithe giving goes to multiplying movements of disciples?
I believe that very few people really even consider investing their financial resources in disciple making ministries that multiply disciples. That kind of giving would be considered a “high-yield” investment. Investing in disciple making is one of the very best ways to use the resources God has given you. It is an investment that keeps on making an impact.
Think of it this way. If you invest $100 dollars in a disciple making ministry that helps produce multiple generations of disciples, then your money has paid a huge dividend. If you give $100 to a ministry that has a one-time result and that’s it, then your yield could be good, but not necessarily high. In other words, you had earned a small amount of interest rather than the maximum amount of interest.
I am personally very committed to tithing and “over and above” giving to my local church. I know that God expects me to support the “storehouse,” and I also know the church I belong to is a disciple making church.
I also give to some disciple making ministries that I know are multiplying disciples. There is no shortage of ministries and people asking for support, but I have chosen to give to the ones that are specifically multiplying disciples. To me, this is the very best way of stewarding the resources God has placed in my hands.
Impact Discipleship Ministries is one of the disciple making ministries that I support. I give to Impact because I know that it is a ministry that is committed to launching disciple making movements. Giving to Impact gives me confidence to know that my investment in a movement will keep paying dividends long after I am dead and gone. What kind of investment can be better than that?
