Returning to Jesus

Why do people give to the church?  Is God short of money?  Or is there, perhaps, some other reason?  The Bible tells us that God is a great giver. 'For God so loved the world that He gave... John 3:16. 'Behold what manner of love the Father has given to us... 1John 3:1. God wants to recreate His character in us. In other words God wants to teach us how to give because He gives. We know from an early age that humans don't need too many lessons on how to take, but rather how to give.

So, when we give, where does the money go? Whats is it for? In the Bible God set up the tithing system to support missionary service.
