Why We Tithe!
A Tithe Which just means "Tenth" is defined as the first 10% of a persons income required by God to be given
to the "Store-House" which represents the local church of which you are a member. Tithing is a principal that is taught throughout the entire bible. It's purpose is to make sure that there is always sufficient finances in the house of God to support the work we're called to do, and each member is to contribute their fair share by faithfully and cheerfully bringing their tithe. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first in our lives.
Bringing our tithes is an opportunity for us to give our thanks to God, show Him that we trust
Him and to fight against the greed in our hearts, all while allowing us to be part of the most important work in life
which is spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
The following passages of scripture will help you in furthering your understanding of the subject of tithing.
Leviticus 27:30, Proverbs 3:9-10, Malachi 3:6-10, 1 Corinthians 16:1-2.
