Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this…and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. Malachi 3:10.
What is tithing?
A tithe, (which means tenth) is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income that is given back to the local church. Tithing is a principle that is taught throughout the Bible. Jesus spoke more about money than he did on any other topic. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way, by being obedient to God and putting him first in our lives.
Why should I tithe?
For many, the idea of bringing the first 10% of our income to the Church seems overwhelming. The thing is, it doesn’t matter how much or how little we make, God promises to pour out blessings on us when we tithe. Tithing is about training our heart to trust God at His Word. God even says to test Him on this principle.
Here is Pastor Ronnie’s message from Sunday, 8-2 on Tithing. Watch it here: “The Church Just Wants Your Money – Week 1”
