What is Tithing?
“Tithe” means “a tenth part.”
Why Should I Tithe?
Because God commands it.
“A tenth of all you produce is the Lord’s.” (Leviticus 27:30)
Because Jesus commended it.
“Yes, you should tithe, and you shouldn’t leave the more important things undone either.” (Matthew 23:23)
Tithing demonstrates that God has first place in one’s life.
“The purpose of tithing is to teach you to always put God in first place in your lives.” (Deuteronomy 14:23)
Tithing reminds us that everything we have was given by God.
“Always remember that it is the Lord your God who gives you the ability to produce wealth.” (Deuteronomy 8:18)
Tithing expresses love to the Lord.
“Each of you should bring a gift in proportion to the way the Lord your God has blessed you.” (Deuteronomy 16:17)
God says that refusing to tithe is stealing from Him.
“God says, ‘Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing me!’ But you say, ‘How do we rob you?’ God says ‘In tithes and offerings … Bring your whole tithe to My house.’” (Malachi 3:8-10)
