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)
