Sorry if this question has already been addressed, I am new to this site. My question stems off of two verses referencing giving in the New Testament?
Matthew 6:3 "When you give to the needy do not let your right hand know what your left hand is doing."
Mark 12:17 Then Jesus said to them, "Give back to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's." And they were amazed at him.
Through these verses it appears that we should not be tracking our giving and associating what we give in taxes to the government. Yet, many churches and Christian organizations provide an avenue for this to take place. Am I taking these verses out of context? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
