Tithing is an act of faith and obedience based on the divine principle that everything we have comes from God’s hands. If you want to invite God more fully into your life through tithing, agree in your heart on a percentage of your income that you will give to Him regularly. Tithing was not put into place for Gods’s benefit. He already has everything He needs.
Tithing teaches us to be good stewards of what God has given us and remember, whether you’re giving a tithe, offering, or some other special contribution, it should come from your heart. It’s an important part of any financial plan and quite rewarding when you can support the building of God kingdom.
Tithing is currently defined by the church as payment to the church of one-tenth of one’s annual income. Despite the fact that many people use the word “tithing” synchronously with any church-related giving, the word tithe literally means tenth. Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. 2 Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. (MATT. 6:1-2 NKJV)
