3. Jesus had an expectation for His pastors/teachers to be provided for from the people they were teaching as in the tithe principle (1 Cor.9:14, Matt. 10:9,10, Genesis 14)

4. Giving to the needy within the Christian community was standard in the early church (Matt. 25:31-40, Acts 6, 11:28-30, 1 Tim. 5)

5. All Christians from all economic levels are to give of their financial resources to God (Luke 21, 1 Cor. 9)
