Leaders are not exempt from making offerings to the Lord, as the Bible demonstrated with ancient Israel, “Now the leaders offered the dedication offering for the altar when it was anointed; so the leaders offered their offering before the altar. For the LORD said to Moses,
‘They shall offer their offering, one leader each day, for the dedication of the altar’” (Numbers 7:10-11).
Then the rest of the chapter shows the generous offering they made.
Leaders cannot expect the followers to give, if the leaders do not give, and the leaders cannot expect the followers to give generously, if the leaders do not give generously.
Do you function as a leader in the church? If so, are you generous?
